    Russell Crowe arrested at NY hotel

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- Hollywood star Russell Crowe has been arrested in New York and charged with assault after allegedly throwing a telephone that struck a hotel employee in the face, according to police.

    Officers said the New Zealand-born actor was expected to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court later on Monday.

    "He was upset because he couldn't get a call out to Australia," said Sgt. Michael Wysokowski. "He threw a phone at the employee hitting him in the face and causing a minor laceration."

    The incident took place at the Mercer Street Hotel in the SoHo district of New York City shortly after 4 a.m. on Monday.

    Police said the victim was taken to St.Vincent's Hospital. Crowe was taken to a police station were he was charged with second-degree assault. If convicted he could face up to a year in prison.

    Crowe was in New York promoting his latest movie, "Cinderella Man," a biopic based on the life of world heavyweight champ James J. Braddock, which opened in theaters last weekend.

    According to Nielsen the movie ranked fourth place in theaters and grossed $18.6 million.

    Crowe, who won an Oscar for Best Actor in 2001 for playing Maximus in "Gladiator," has often been in the news for off-stage incidents.

    At the 2002 Bafta Awards in Britain, he admitted to being "abusive" and "behaving unreasonably" towards a TV producer.

    And later that year he was spoken to by police after an alleged brawl with a New Zealand businessman in a London restaurant.

    The 41-year-old actor married singer and actress Danielle Spencer in 2003.

    And that would get a call out quicker, how?

    Crowe is starting to live up to his caricature on South Park.

    You could pay $10 to see Crowe's latest flick to watch him fight or you could just follow him around and watch it for free. Oh, and since Chip mentioned the South Park episode with Crowe, his theme music....

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
