Authorities say actor Jason London has been arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct after an Arizona bar fight.

Scottsdale police say London allegedly sneezed on a man who then asked him to apologize, but London refused and instead hit the man in the face.

The Arizona Republic says the two men were escorted out of the bar, but London began pushing and cursing at firefighters trying to treat him and appeared extremely drunk. He was arrested early Monday.

According to the paper, the police report indicates that as he was being driven to a local jail, London cursed at police and intentionally defecated his pants in the vehicle.

London's wife, Sophia, told police that London was often rude when he drank alcohol, the report said. She also said her husband didn't remember the incident, according to the police report.

London's Twitter account says "some guy thought I was hitting on his girl" and that several large bouncers beat him, breaking bones in his face. London added, "the truth will win" and "I hate Arizona."

London, 40, starred as Randall Floyd in the 1993 movie "Dazed and Confused."
