Actor Jeremy Renner’s representative has dismissed reports suggesting The Hurt Locker star was caught up in a Thai bar brawl, insisting he was able to leave the place before violence erupted.
Reports suggested Renner was left with minor injuries after the fight, but it appears he saw the trouble coming after a member of his entourage dropped a glass on the floor.

The friend, Vorasit Issara, was reportedly stabbed in the melee on Thursday morning and taken to hospital in Bangkok.

Renner’s publicist insists the actor “wasn’t involved in the fight in any way” and exited the building in Phuket before the brawl started.

The actor is in Thailand filming The Bourne Legacy.
