Actor Armie Hammer and his friends attempted to stop a reckless speed racer on a busy California street by creating a blockade with their Vespas. The Social Network star and his pals trapped a Ferrari driver who was racing at high speeds on Abbot Kinney street in Venice on Sunday (15Feb15), because he was creating a hazard for pedestrians and other cars, according to TMZ.com.
Hammer claims the man tried to sneak past the bikers, almost striking them with his vehicle.
The confrontation between Hammer and his friends and the Ferrarri driver escalated, and police were called to the scene.
Reports suggest officers were able to end the stand-off without citing either party with a traffic violation.

A brief history of things that are very much like other things, or at least that have been accused of being so:
1831-42: Nikolai Gogol publishes a several works of fiction, including "The Nose," "The Overcoat," and Dead Souls.
1846: Fyodor Dostoevsky publishes Dvoynik (in English: The Double), a novel about a timid, awkward guy who meets his confident, assertive lookalike.
1846: Literary critic Konstantin Aksakov accuses Dostoevsky of lifting from the various works of Gogol's, stating in a review of The Double that "Dostoevsky alters and wholly repeats Gogol's phrases."
1985: Director Terry Gilliam releases Brazil, a film about a tremendous corporation.
2002: Writer José Saramago publishes O Homem Duplicado (in English: The Double), a novel about a timid, awkward guy who meets his confident, assertive lookalike.
2006: Richard Ayoade begins starring on the British sitcom The IT Crowd, about the technological department of a tremendous corporation.
2007: Richard Ayoade stars in an unaired pilot for an American version of The IT Crowd, which was very much just a carbon copy of the original.
2007: America becomes aware of Michael Cera.
2009: America becomes aware of Jesse Eisenberg.
2009: America accuses Jesse Eisenberg of being a carbon copy of Michael Cera.
2010: Michael Cera stars in Youth in Revolt, in which he plays two roles: a timid, awkward guy (in keeping with his off-screen image) and a confident, assertive looklalike.
2010: Jesse Eisenberg stars in The Social Network, a film about a tremendous technological corporation. In the film, supporting cast member Armie Hammer plays two roles, though they are essentially the same character.
2011: Director Michael Brandt releases The Double, a film not at all affiliated with Dostoevsky's novel The Double.
2014: Jake Gyllenhaal stars in enemy Enemy, a film — based on Saramago's novel The Double — in which he plays two roles: a timid, awkward guy and his confident, assertive lookalike.
2014: Now a director, Richard Ayoade releases The Double, a film — based on Dostoevsky's novel The Double — about a tremendous corproation and starring Jesse Eisenberg. In the film, Eisenberg plays two roles: a timid, awkward guy (in keeping with his off screen image) and a confident, assertive lookalike. The first Eisenberg grows to hate the second Eisenberg for stealing his shtick.
2014: Some film critics accuse Ayoade of lifting from Gilliam, likening the dystopian aesthetic to that of Brazil.
2015 and on: Films, stories, and people will continue to work their way into our lives, earning scorn for their similarities to those that came before, be these similarities the result of theft, homage, simple coincidence, or diluted perception.

Actress Halle Berry is among a number of celebrities who have been named in a bizarre lawsuit filed by a homeless woman who is using the case to pitch a TV show. The Monster's Ball star, former child actress Amanda Bynes and The Social Network's Armie Hammer have been named in the lawsuit, which the claimant Jo Anne Vandegriff admits is for the sole purpose of getting them to read her script.
Vandegriff is also targeting the Disney movie studio because she wants the company to produce her mini-series, according to a report by TMZ.com.
It is not known on what basis Vandegriff is suing the stars, but in the paperwork she claims she is using the legal system to get their attention because "a mini-series of this nature only comes along once every twenty to 30 years".

With the help of a little movie magic and his innate talent, Armie Hammer pulled off one of the most talked-about film performances of 2010. The actor and great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer earned glowing reviews for his scene-stealing portrayal of real-life twins in "The Social Network" (2010), directed by David Fincher. While the film explored the complicated and controversial founding of the social website, Facebook, it was Hammer's dual role that garnered some of the loudest buzz from critics and viewers alike. Before this breakthrough part, Hammer stirred up drama with a recurring guest appearance on the hit primetime series "Gossip Girl" (The CW, 2007- ), a sure sign that his leading man stature and swagger made the actor viable for an array of television projects and blockbuster features. His well-received co-starring performance opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's biopic "J. Edgar" (2011) only confirmed his status as a fast-rising Hollywood star.
Hammer and his wife, TV journalist Elizabeth Chambers, opened Bird Bakery in San Antonio, TX in November 2011.
Hammer was reportedly arrested in Sierra Blanca, TX on Nov. 30, 2011 for marijuana possession. A drug-sniffing police dog allegedly found three medicinal pot cookies and one brownie in Hammer's possession at a border patrol checkpoint. The actor spent a day in jail before bailing out on a $1,000 bond.
