Update: Christian Bale Arrested On Assault Charges!

Update: Christian Bale’s attorneys released a statement today denying arrest and assault allegations – according to his lawyers Bale has left the station with no charges being made.

“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.”

After just posting the cutest pictures of Christian Bale, his wife Sandra “Sibi” Blazic and their adorable 3-year-old daughter, Emmeline departing from LAX on Saturday, the Batman star has been arrested by detectives investigating a claim of assault, police sources said today. Bale, 34, faces questioning over the charges — made by his own mother and sister.

Christian was arrested just hours after he attended the first European screening of the new Batman blockbuster, The Dark Knight. He remains in custody. He is alleged to have made the assault on Sunday night at Park Lane’s Dorchester Hotel, where he was renting a suite.

Christian’s 61-year-old mother, Jenny, and his 40-year-old sister, Sharon, who both live in Dorset, went to a police station in Hampshire yesterday to lodge the allegation. The matter was referred to the Met Police.

The allegation is the latest drama to surround the blockbuster film. Heath Ledger, who plays arch-villain The Joker, died in January from an accidental drugs overdose at the tender age of 28. Also, a special-effects technician was killed last September in a stunt car accident.

    BAH! Im upset about this! I really like him and don’t want him being a “bad guy” in the media!

  • EMI

    It is a sad day when publicity like this has to come out… knowing
    that he got off on all charges…

  • mikit

    He was released…and going back in September.

  • Lana

    He was released without any charges being made.

  • Nicole

    You should probably add that he turned himself in voluntarily and was released.

    Plus, look at this from TMZ:

    There are reports circulating that Christian Bale was arrested for verbal assault, and one of Bale’s reps is echoing that.

    Who knew, but we called around jolly old England and found there is such a thing as verbal assault, Class 4 and Class 5. Class 4 is more aggravated than 5, with “an intent to cause alarm.”

    It’s the perfect time to try and get him arrested though, isn’t it?

    What is sick about all of this, is that it’s his own FAMILY that pressed the charges. I’ve gotten into arguments with my own family and we’ve all said and did some things that were not very nice but never in a million years would anyone ever go to that extreme. It’s obvious that they did it to knock him down a few and that’s simply pathetic.

    Great actor, great guy.
    They really need to cool it. I think they want attention from him and think is’s some joke.
    He’s my favorite actor and i think has alot more going for him.

    leave well enough alone.
