A man was arrested on the set of a Woody Allen film in Rhode Island. He was charged with assault after throwing furniture.

Security guards tell WPRI-TV the man went to the set and began asking “weird questions” about the movie’s stars, who include Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix and Parker Posey.

Allen has been filming in Rhode Island since last month.

Police identify the man as Mark Spiridakos. They say he ran from the set and was tackled and then was taken to a hospital with a head injury.

    You see, this is why he made all those films in Europe where these things don’t happen.

    Oh no. They chased away the only paying audience member to any of his past dozen films!

    Disappointingly, it wasn’t Woody Allen.

    Integrate the chase and tackle into the film. It can only enhance the final product.

    A bit of a pattern of misleading sensationalist headlines here Alan isn’t there? I really thought we might expect better.
