As reported by the Daily Mail, the actor attacked the chef of a pub on the Costa Blanca in Alicante. Starr was then arrested and held two nights in a cell by police before attending court, where he was sentenced to 12 months on probation and to pay $ 7,855 in compensation.
According to the unfortunate 21-year-old chef Bathuel Araujo, the actor seemed to be drunk and went into a rage. At Araujo's request to calm down, Starr pushed him and then punched him in the jaw and eye. The young chef even said that Starr yelled at him: "You don't know who you've messed with. You don't know who I am and what you've done. You’ve committed the mistake of your life and I’m going to look for you. I want to kill you."

The chef was then taken to the hospital where he received four stitches above the eye. Following the crime, the plaintiff allegedly faced a quick trial that led to the aforementioned sentence.
"The detainee's state of drunkenness was taken into account as an extenuating factor," stated a court official in this regard. "The sentence was the result of an agreement between the state prosecution service and the man who was subsequently convicted."
