Christian Bale arrested

July 22 (AP) Batman star Christian Bale was arrested Tuesday over allegations of assaulting his mother and sister, police and British media said. The 34-year-old actor spent four hours at a London police station before being released on bail. A statement from Bale's London-based law firm Schillings said Bale denies the allegation. "Christian Bale attended a London police station today on a voluntary basis. Bale, who denies the allegation, cooperated 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," it said. British media had reported that Bale's mother and sister complained he had assaulted them at the Dorchester Hotel in London on Sunday night, a day before the European premiere of his latest film, "The Dark Knight."

First Shia LaBeouf gets arrested and now Christian Bale! I wonder what he and his mom were fighting about. If it's anything like my husband and his mom, Christian's mom wanted him to attach wheels to her Buddhist altar and then changed her mind after the wheels and hardware had been purchased, or she had him drive an hour to her house to get a box down from her closet even though his siblings live 30 minutes closer to her place. The scenarios are endless.

In happier Bale news, Terminator Salvation director McG says his crew is half way through filming the 4th installment of the Terminator franchise. Warner Bros. studio released a 15 second teaser for Salvation on The Dark Knight screens last weekend. Watch it here. T4 photo courtesy of
