"The Boys" star Antony Starr was arrested last week for allegedly assaulting a chef in Alicante, Spain, according to the local outlet, La Información.

Starr, a New Zealand born actor, has been in Spain shooting for Guy Ritchie’s new action movie, "The Interpreter." He was allegedly intoxicated when he punched a 21-year-old chef at a pub, according to Variety. Per the New Zealand Herald, glass was also thrown at the chef’s face. 

According to La Información, the chef, Bathuel Araujo, said that Starr, 46, had told him "F--k  you, f--k off," during the incident.

La Información reported that Araujo was taken by ambulance to a hospital where he was given four stitches above his eye.

"The Boys'" actor was ordered to pay $5,464.97 in restitution within 72 hours, and he was given a 12-month suspended prison sentence, reported by Variety. 

Local police declined to comment on Starr's arrest nor would they confirm his suspended sentence according to Variety. 

In Spain, convictions under two years are suspended automatically if the guilty culprit has no criminal record — Starr does not have a criminal record, according to reports.

According to Variety, Starr's arrest came just before Amazon Prime Video is scheduled to bring the latest season of "The Boys,"  to the SXSW film festival, featuring panels and other fan experiences. Starr portrays Homelander, the leader of a band of superheroes who's got a sinister bent.

Starr is also known for his appearance in "Banshee," and New Zealand's comedy-drama "Outrageous Fortune" (2005).
