Maybe it wasn’t such great acting after all…Very sad news, as actor Christian Bale has been arrested in London for assaulting his mother and sister.
Batman star Christian Bale has been arrested by detectives investigating claims he assaulted two family members.
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.
The family was in London for the UK premiere of THE DARK KNIGHT. The assault took place on Sunday, the day before the premiere. According to the Sun the police waited to question Bale so that the premiere could go on.
UPDATE: As you might expect, TMZ has breaking news on this:
So why did cops put a hold on busting Batman? They didn’t think he’d flee.
Scotland Yard tells us after his mom and sis dropped a dime on Bale yesterday, the cops didn’t jump because they felt Christian was not a flight risk. Also, they thought the crime was not super serious.
So, we’re told, they waited until after “The Dark Knight” premiere to have him pay a visit to the station.
