Vinnie Jones was arrested two hours from here for getting into a bar fight over him being in X-Men 3.

Hollywood actor and former British soccer player Vinnie Jones was arrested after a bar fight in downtown Sioux Falls, authorities said.

His movie credits include “Snatch,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds” and as the character Juggernaut in “X-Men: The Last Stand.”

Police said Jones got into a scuffle late Thursday at Wiley’s Tavern and suffered cuts on his face from a beer glass.

A police sergeant said Jones apparently charged at Jesse Bickett of Montrose, who hit Jones with the glass.

Bickett was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault.

One of Bickett’s roommates, Juan Barrera, said they were playing pool when Jones asked to play, then got offended when one of them asked if he was “that guy from X-Men.” Barrera said he was punched by Jones, and countered with one or two of his own.

Authorities said Jones was treated at a hospital, then was charged with simple assault and posted bail Friday morning.

Jones’ manager, Alex Cole, said Jones was on vacation, but he didn’t know what the actor was doing in Sioux Falls.

You couldn’t write that if you tried.
