'A Star Is Born' Cinematographer Matthew Libatique Arrested for Alleged Assault on Public Officials (Report)

Oscar-nominated cinematographer Matthew Libatique, known for his work on 2010′s Black Swan and 2018′s A Star Is Born, has been arrested in Poland for alleged assault, the AP reports.

Apparently the 50-year-old cinematographer assaulted paramedics and police after they were called to a hotel, “where he had been seen staggering.”

The alleged assault occurred on Tuesday (November 13) in the city of Bydgoszcz, where he was attending the Camerimage international film festival.

“The patient suddenly became aggressive toward medical rescuers, used offensive words and hit the head of the emergency medical team,” Krzysztof Wisniewski, an emergency official, said in a statement.

He could face up to three years in prison for allegedly assaulting public officials. Apparently, a paramedic broke a tooth and suffered other injuries in the scuffle.
