Snatch, Vinnie Jones

Columbia Pictures

Juggernaut has been bombarded.

X-Men: The Last Stand actor Vinnie Jones was charged Wednesday with three counts of simple assault for brawling in a South Dakota bar last week.

The one-time pro soccer player (and notorious yellow-card acquirer) is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 30 in Minnehaha County.

Jones was busted Dec. 4 at Wiley's Tavern in Sioux Falls after allegedly slugging a fellow patron. Or maybe not so allegedly: Authorities said that closed-circuit security footage shows the Snatch thesp repeatedly hitting 24-year-old Juan Barrera.

During the scrum, another bargoer, Jesse Bickett, busted Jones' nose with a beer glass—an injury that required a trip to a nearby hospital for stitches—but prosecutors opted not to press charges against Bickett, calling the fight a "mutual combat situation," according to the local Argus Leader.
