Jonathan Rhys MyersTroubled 'Tudors' star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was found guilty yesterday of threatening to kill three French policemen. The AFP reports that a court in the suburban French town of Bobigny handed Rhys Meyers a one-month suspended sentence and ordered him to pay a 1,000-euro ($1,351) fine for a drunken altercation with police at a Paris airport.

The 34 year-old actor launched the attack in a bar at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris back in 2009. The court heard how he first struck and cursed at a barman who had refused to pour him a drink. Rhys Meyers, who was described in court as being "extremely aggressive" at the time, then abused the gendarmes who arrived to arrest him, screaming "I'm going to give a million dollars to ruin your life. I'll kill you and your family."
