Jeremy Renner has been attacked in a bar brawl in Thailand which resulted in a man being stabbed in the neck.

The 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' star was enjoying an evening out visiting various bars on the island of Phuket but the night took a turn for the worse when the actor and his friends visited a local nightclub.

According to, Jeremy's pal Vorasit Issara - the General Manager of the Siri Panwa Resort - dropped a glass on the floor of the establishment which sparked the brawl.

Six men, who allegedly worked at the nightclub, then attacked Jeremy and his acquaintances and Vorasit was stabbed in the neck with a rotor axe and knifed in the stomach.

It is not yet known if the 40-year-old actor - who stars alongside Tom Cruise in the action sequel - suffered any injuries in the incident.

It has also been claimed that Vorasit had been embroiled in an argument with staff before the fight erupted.

According to local authorities, the six men who instigated the attack have been arrested.
