Christian Bale arrested for alleged assault

Posted in Entertainment tagged , , at 8:25 pm by Katharine Lackey

In one of the most talked about stories of the day, Christian Bale turned himself into police this morning after his mother and sister went to a police station last night alleging that the famous Batman star had assaulted them, says People.com.

Bale’s attorneys released a statement denying the allegations against the actor:

“Christian Bale attended a London police station today, on a voluntary basis, in order to assist with an allegation that had been made against him to the police by his mother and sister,” the star’s lawyers said in the statement. “Mr. Bale who denies the allegation, co-operated throughout, gave his account in full of the events in question, and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police. At this time, there will be no further comment by Mr. Bale.”

There doesn’t seem to be much out there from Bale’s accusers although one newspaper is quoting his sister:

“There was an incident but the police are dealing with it,” Sharon told the Telegraph newspaper in the U.K. “It is an extremely sensitive situation. There is nothing more I can say.”

The Telegraph reports that sources are saying Bale allegedly lashed out at his family members, pushing one of them during an argument over a long-running family dispute.

Bale has always held his private life dear so we may never know exactly what happened, or why his own family would report him — it seems as though the police believed the alleged assault to be minor.
