Christian Bale Arrested For Assault

July 22nd, 2008 // 19 Comments

UPDATE: Christian Bale has been released on bail after
voluntarily turning himself in and his lawyers have released a
statement on behalf of their client:

“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,” was the
statement given to the L.A. Times.

As for his family, Bale’s sister told British publication the
Telegraph, “It is an extremely sensitive situation. There is nothing
more I can say.”

Christian Bale looked a little out of it at the London premiere of The Dark Knight. Now we know why.

The box-office breaking star turned himself in to a London police station for questioning about allegedly assaulting his mother and sister in his hotel room the day before the movie premiere.

The women went to local authorities who then passed the case on to the Metropolitan Police who have only stated that there are no charges on a 34-year-old male who for assault allegations, and that he remains in custody. London police will not release names until charges are officially filed.

    If his mother and sister were assaulted
    than where are the
    photographs..of the
    assault..And it seems
    like an odd time for
    this to happen..

    Why keep him in custody if you are
    not going to charge
    him with anything..

  2. SweetSoprano

    WTF?? Please tell me this isn’t true because any man that would hit a woman – ESPECIALLY his mother and sister (!) – deserves to rot in hell.

  3. T-Bone

    I sure hope this isn’t true. I like this guy. But if he did what they say he did, well….let the chips fall where they may…

    sweet saprono and T-bone: ditto

    WTF: IF this is proven to be true this guy is FINISHED and on my S*H*I*T* list 4-evaa

    I’d just like to caution everyone to relax and wait to find out the details. A week before the Superbowl this year a woman claimed assault against Randy Moss. The media went nuts. A couple months after the initial claim, the woman dropped it. Nothing ever happened and she admitted that. So, always be patient when stories like this come out.

    Does anyone know what the mom and sis are claiming happened?

  6. Zekers

    I checked other news outlets and it does sound a bit suspicious. They claim they were assaulted on Sunday but didn’t report it until Monday…But, as the wise T-Bone stated, “…if he did what they say he did…”

    I hope its all a big misunderstanding…

    Folks, his mom and sister are lowlifes who demanded he take care of them at his hotel. They got mad at the staff when they wouldn’t let them into his room while he was out. I’m sure he didn’t do anything wrong.

  8. What The?!?

    From JustJared & DListed…

    Apparently CB’s sister & mother showed up at the hotel & made messy spectacles of themselves demanding to see him & harassing hotel staff because staff wouldn’t let the 2 of them into CB’s room without him there.
    There’s some drunk & drink issues with the sister & mother, and when CB arrived they demanded money from him & that he should “take care of his own.”
    The police have to investigate, but you can tell from how they’re phrasing this whole thing that they doubt the validity of the claims of these 2 parasites.
    You shouldn’t feel anything for CB except pity that his biological mother & his sister are sponging, evil c*nts.

    CB did the exact right thing by turning himself in. By cooperating with the authorities it makes him a sympathetic party to them. AND to the press and his fans. Good move.

    If his mom and sis are the shrewish, gold-digging snags they seem to be, then my sympathies to Christian. What a damper on the success of the movie.

    Being a celeb isn’t all fun and games, huh?

  10. Why_Do_I_Care?

    …and let’s not forget, even if they ARE parasites and lunatics, assault is not the answer?

  11. What The?!?

    @ Why_Do_I_Care:

    Even touching them is technically ‘assault’ in the eyes of the law. So if CB – as has been suggested – was just keeping his mother & sister from forcing their way into his hotel room, they can go to the police.
    Ever shoved someone away from you who’s in your face? That’s (technically) assault.
    Police usually see through these things & charges don’t result.
    And yes – I DO believe if a parasitic lunatic family member (or anyone else) is threatening my person, I have a right to protect myself. That includes kicking the sh*t out of them.

  12. d. LauRen

    poor guy, i feels bad for him…

  13. Krystyn

    actually, assault is defined differently in every country and even within countries in certain jurisdictions.

    I just read that in England, you can be arrested for verbally assaulting a person…so he could have been yelling at them and this is their way to “get back at him”

  14. S_M_G

    I don’t believe the allegations. If there was an assault in the hotel, the hotel would have intervened.

    I can not imagine what a low life his mom and sister must be to go to the police with no physical evidence.

    Sad sad sad…

  15. TONY THE TIGER

    I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED: a friend of mine who is a concierge in London heard it through the grapevine: the mother and sister were very belligerent and possibly drunk and demanded his attention (noone knows if they wanted money or invites to the event or whatnot) and he had to push them off him.

    Too bad that just because a terrible act is alleged most of the people who left earlier posts are ready to attack him.

    His mom and sister are clearly malevolent sorts.

    Krystyn>>mate you took the words right out of my mouth!!

  17. seriously_people

    for shame you people at the beginning! no one should be so quick to jugde the guy based on what 2 women who clearly want his money say. being a girl i never understand why people are so quick to assume that the guy is always at fault. he seems like a good guy and it sucks that he has money leeches for relatives. i hope it all gets sorted out soon so that you people at the beginning of this post can be shown the error of their judgements

  18. christian
