The actor, 36, tangled with a doorman at the Vortex bar and grill when he was turned away for being verbally abusive and apparently intoxicated, according to a police report obtained by Celebuzz.com.

The doorman, Jerry Link, told police the actor, identified as "Mr. Samuel" in the report, "pushed him twice with his hands. At that time Mr. Link pepper-sprayed Mr. Samuel and handcuffed him until the police arrived," says the officer's report, according to Celebuzz.

While confirming the incident, a manager at Vortex told PEOPLE, "We can't make any comment."

The charges were dropped when Link didn't appear in court, according to Celebuzz.
