“Jeremy was there [but] was not involved,” a rep for the actor told MTV News. “When a fight broke out, he exited [and] was not injured.”
The Phuket Gazette reports that Renner had been hanging out at the Rachada Pub in Phuket Town when six employees stabbed and injured two local men, Sri Panwa Resort General Manager Vorasit Issara and Maj Gen Chonasit, early Wednesday.
The newspaper further reports that Renner had been in their company, along with Vorasit’s driver, Noppadon Preechawai, and several other friends. The Gazette originally reported that Renner had been injured in the scuffle.
Prior to arriving at Rachada Pub, the group had also been spotted at two other local hotspots, KorTorMor Pub and another club near Royal Phuket City Hotel.
The six men are currently being held by local authorities and addressed the media at a press conference on Thursday (January 5). The pub where the incident occurred has since been shut down for six months because it violated a local curfew.
Renner has been in the Philippines filming “The Bourne Legacy,” the actor’s rep said. He recently opened up to MTV News about
filming “Legacy” and filling in the spot left vacant by the franchise’s longtime star, Matt Damon.
“He’s always been so complimentary to me from the moment I met him. Such a great guy,” Renner said. “He’s a very, very complimentary, loving dude.”
