The actor, who plays Homelander on the Amazon superhero drama, was reportedly arrested in Alicante, Spain, last weekend.

The Boys actor Antony Starr was arrested over the weekend in Alicante, Spain, and handed a suspended 12-month sentence, according to multiple reports.

Starr -- best known for his role as the secretly sinister superhero Homelander on Amazon's The Boys -- was arrested in the early morning of Wednesday, Mar. 2, for allegedly assaulting a chef outside a Costa Blanca pub.

Chef Bathuel Araujo, 21, claimed that Starr was intoxicated and had punched him twice before smashing a glass in his face. Araujo was reportedly taken to a hospital and his injuries required four stitches to his face.

According to Variety, Starr admitted to the drunken assault in a speedy trial, after spending two nights behind bars, and was given a 12-month suspended sentence and ordered to pay restitution to Araujo in the amount of $5,464.97 within 72-hours.

The publication states that in Spain, any sentence under two years is automatically suspended if the convicted offender does not have a criminal record, which Starr does not.

The New Zealand-born actor was reportedly in Spain for the filming of an upcoming Guy Ritchie movie, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
