Man accused of throwing chair, assaulting guards on Woody Allen movie set

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - A man accused of throwing furniture on the set of a Woody Allen movie in Rhode Island's capital has been arrested and charged with assault.

Providence police say the man tossed a chair and assaulted security guards Tuesday on the set, which is near Brown University.

Security guards tell WPRI-TV the man went to the set and began asking "weird questions" about the movie's stars, who include Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix and Parker Posey.

Allen has been filming in Rhode Island since last month.

Police identify the man as Mark Spiridakos. They say he ran from the set and was tackled and then was taken to a hospital with a head injury.

Spiridakos can't be reached for comment in the hospital. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
