Action star Jeremy Renner had to fight off a real-life attack last night during a bar brawl in Thailand, one that sent two men to the hospital.

Jeremy was drinking with friends at Rachada Pub in Phuket Town around 4:30am when, according to the police, one of Renner's friends, Vorasit Issar (GM of the luxurious Sri Panwa Resort), dropped a glass on the floor which started an argument with the staff.

As the disagreement escalated, six men, who worked at the bar and the Canara restaurant next door, started attacking Renner and Issar with a a rotor axe, metal pipes, and a wooden club.

Before the fight was over, 20 men were involved and Vorasit was slashed in the neck and stabbed in the stomach. His chauffeur, Noppadon Preechawai, was also seriously injured after being slashed in the face with an axe. Both are still in the hospital, but are in stable condition. Luckily for Renner he only suffered minor injuries.

The six men were arrested and admitted to attacking Renner and his friends in the brawl. And, for now, the Rachada pub has been closed because the incident happened after Phuket Town closing hours.

Hopefully Renner will have better luck in Manila when he arrives in the Philippine city next week to shoot scenes for his upcoming movie, The Bourne Legacy.

That is why it is always

That is why it is always encouraged for you to be at your best behaviour while you are at a foreign land. Your safety and security are at risk, thus always keep a low profile. If possible, try to avoid the places where fights often occur like night spots and such. If you have to drink, do not do so excessively until you are not able to be in control of yourself. This is one of the factors that affect home or business owners when they put up their property for sale in such a hotspot for tourists. Potential buyers take into consideration the safety and risk factors before deciding to invest in a property there.
