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.
