Man arrested on movie set
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A man accused of throwing furniture on the set of a Woody Allen movie in Rhode Island’s capital has been arrested and charged with assault.
Providence police said the man tossed a chair and assaulted security guards Tuesday on the set, which is along a river and a busy thoroughfare.
Security guards told 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 identified the man as Mark Spiridakos. They said he ran from the set and was tackled, and then was taken to a hospital with a head injury.
Spiridakos couldn’t be reached for comment in the hospital. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
