Christian Bale has been arrested by British detectives who are investigating claims he assaulted two family members, according to the BBC.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said a 34-year-old man had been arrested in connection with an allegation of assault, and remained in custody.
Mr Bale is alleged to have lashed out at his mother and sister in his suite at London’s Dorchester Hotel on Sunday.
Bale was at the European premiere of The Dark Knight last night in London and he had been due to meet with radio journalists to promote the film on Tuesday afternoon.
This is rather bad timing, however he has only been taken in for questioning and has not been charged with anything as of yet.
Update: The case will resume in September, unless charges escalate. Bale denies all charges.
