It’s been nine years since this — actor Russell Crowe handcuffed and arraigned for allegedly throwing a phone at a hotel clerk in New York.
Crowe had been trying to call his wife in Australia and couldn’t get through. According to Crowe, Nestor Estrada wasn’t helpful when the actor called the front desk for assistance.
“His response was, ‘Whatever,’ and he hung up on me, so I went downstairs and had a word with him,” the actor said on the “Sunday Night” program.
