Perhaps now he'll return home, to terrorize and physically abuse low-wage concierges in Australia's finest hotels.
from the AP: Russell Crowe pleaded guilty Friday to third-degree assault, admitting to a judge that he threw a phone that hit a Manhattan hotel concierge in June.
Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Kathryn Freed sentenced the actor to a conditional discharge, which means he must not get arrested for one year. The judge also instructed Crowe to pay a $160 court surcharge, which defense attorney Gerald Lefcourt said would be paid immediately.
If he had been convicted of more serious charges initially filed against him — assault and criminal possession of a weapon — Crowe could have lost his right to work in the United States and might have faced seven years of prison time.
