Liam Hemsworth with his fiancee, Miley Cyrus.

Actor Liam Hemsworth was involved in an altercation with another man outside Continental Midtown (18th & Chestnut) late Saturday night/early Sunday morning.

We're not sure if we would agree with TMZ's assessment that the "Hunger Games" actor "Unleashes a beatdown" or "Rocked another man in the face HARD," but judge for yourself.

We told you Monday that Hemsworth, who is back in town working on "Paranoia," which shot here last summer, and friends had a few bottles of wine and some beers while drinking late night Saturday at Continental Midtown, but were previously unaware of the situation outside the restaurant.

John Bolaris and fiancée Erica Smitheman

John Bolaris was on the verge of tears on Wednesday’s “Dr. Phil,” while recounting the loss of his job at Fox 29 and his credibility following the media fallout over the 2010 Miami episode in which he was drugged and scammed by two women.

Bolaris appeared on the CBS show with fiancee Erica Smitheman who discussed his mental state and the heart attack scare he had around Christmas last year when the meteorologist was suspended by Fox 29.

He and Fox later reached an undisclosed deal in which he left the news station.
