Holy Cow Batman … Cape Crusader, Christian Bale, Arrested by Police in London on Assault Charges by Mother & Sister



Batman arrested? As if the latest Batman movie needed any more publicity. Batman_DK2The Dark Knight just got a little darker. As the latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight, breaks all box office records; the super hero action movie continues to fall deeper into a darkness by the actions of the films actors. First it was the bizarre and untimely death of Heath Ledger, who brilliantly played the Joker in The Dark Knight. Now Batman, Christian Bale, is arrested and accused of assault by his mother and sister. Bale has denied the allegations; however, he was brought into a London police station for 4 hours of questioning.

Bale said the allegations were false Tuesday, hours after the Wales-born actor was arrested, questioned by London police and released on bail. The 34-year-old actor spent four hours talking with authorities but was not charged.

British media reported that Bale’s mother and sister told police he assaulted them at the Dorchester Hotel in London on Sunday night, a day before attending the European premiere of “The Dark Knight.” The Sun newspaper said the complaint was filed by sister Sharon Bale and mother Jenny Bale.

The actor was given VIP treatment as his people carrier was allowed to sweep in through a back entrance, avoiding waiting photographers.

But once inside Bale had his photo, fingerprints and a DNA saliva sample taken.

After being questioned for more than four hours, the Los Angeles-based star was released on bail pending further inquiries.

He is due to report back to police in September.

      Bale seems too in-control of himself and too smart to ever physically go after anyone
