Naceri Held Over Attempted Murder

Actor SAMY NACERI is being held by French police on suspicion of attempted murder. The French star of LUC BESSON's TAXI movie series was arrested on Tuesday night in Aix-en-Provence (02JAN07) after getting into a violent fight outside a night club in the area, and is now in police custody. According to police officials, a drunk Naceri drew a knife on a doorman after he was refused entry to the club. The star was later treated in hospital for an injured jaw and broken teeth. Naceri was also arrested a day earlier on New Year's Day (01JAN07) for driving without a licence in Marseille. It is the latest series of run-ins with the law for the 45-year-old actor, who was sentenced to six months in prison for racially abusing a policeman in December (06). Naceri has been convicted four times since 2000 for assault, drink-driving and speeding.
