Hollywood actor James Woods' dog ANGEL will have to work hard to prove its worthy of its name - after wreaking havoc at a posh Beverly Hills, California, hotel.

ANY GIVEN SUNDAY star Woods, 56, has been staying that the plush RAFFLES L'ERMITAGE HOTEL with his little black mutt.

But, according to American tabloid the STAR, the dog interrupted many high-powered business meetings as it ran amok through the lounge in the hotel lobby.

Guests were barking mad as the crafty canine dashed in and out through their legs and even made off with somebody's potato chips.

A helpful staffer finally managed to scoop Angel up in her arms and return her to her owner - much to everyone's relief.
