  • Manu Bennett as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in season 3 of Arrow.

Maybe you know him as Azog the Defiler from the Hobbit movies. 

Or maybe know him as Crixus, from the hit television series Spartacus.

Or maybe you know him as Slade Wilson, otherwise known as the villain Deathstroke, on the DC comic television series Arrow.

Actor Manu Bennett, who was in San Antonio for Alamo City Comic Con, was arrested overnight Saturday on a charge of assault causing bodily injury, Kens 5 reported.

KENS-5 says Bennett was arrested at the Grand Hyatt hotel downtown in the early morning hours and bailed out of jail by 1 p.m. Sunday.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that Bennett is accused of punching a 29-year-old man in the face around 4:30 a.m. during a party.

So far the SAPD hasn't released many details to local media, but despite his early morning arrest, Bennett was still a hit at Alamo City Comic Con, according to one fan, at least.
