's arrest on Friday, September 17 could jeopardize his blossoming movie career - American immigration officials are investigating the situation and could revoke his visa over the incident. The British star was detained on suspicion of battery after allegedly attacking a photographer as he walked through Los Angeles International Airport with his fiancee on Friday.
