Christian Bale has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting his Mother and sister      

I'm in shock... I always liked Bale so I'm really hoping its not true  
Though part of me does wonder could there be more to it aswell...after all he was a child star wasn't he? was he pushed by his family into this career? I have great reservations about kids forced into the limelight and how it effects them later...look at Wacko Jacko   Or perhaps he's getting into his T4's John Connor character too much???  

He denies the assault anyway

Christian Bale's attorneys released a statement Tuesday denying assault allegations that led to the actor's arrest in London.

"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."

Bale, 34, was arrested in the Belgravia precinct station on Tuesday for a Sunday incident in which he allegedly lashed out at his mother, Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, at London's Dorchester Hotel. He was staying at the hotel before Monday's U.K. premiere of The Dark Knight.

"There was an incident but the police are dealing with it," Sharon told the Telegraph newspaper in the U.K. "It is an extremely sensitive situation. There is nothing more I can say."

According to Britain's The Sun newspaper, the women reported the incident in Hampshire on Monday, and the case was turned over to London officers.

Bale was released later Tuesday with a 10-man police escort, in a blacked-out silver Mercedes people carrier. Bale is to return to police in September, pending further inquiry, a police spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

It is a policy in England to arrest a suspect before questioning him in connection to a possible crime. Bale has not been formally charged.


Or perhaps this could be the reason        



Stay Away RUSSELL!!

I know Bale's parents separated when he was 13 and he went living with his father in the US......so maybe there's a bit of family tension there?

It's all very strange.......there hasn't been reports of his mother and sister having to go to hospital, or if they received cuts or bruises......and the hotel, where the alleged assault took place,  said they hadn't heard anything! Maybe there was an argument and he pushed them away......and they were upset, over-reacted and told the police?

Yeah you could be right there babe...it is a strange event isn't it and of all times for it to happen during this early showing of the Dark Knight??      Its not like the film even needed the extra advertising

Some more info......the row started when His mum and sister told him a sob story of his sister needing £100,000 to cover the cost of bringing up her 3 kids   He refused to lend her the money....a row developed and he "pushed and shoved" them after his mother apparently insulted his wife.

Strangely though, his mother and sister didn't go straight to the police in London.......they waited till they were driving home to Dorset and reported it to Hampshire police    A spokesman for them said they were upset, Bale had bullied them, they didn't want any publicity.....but "they wanted him to be taught a lesson"  

Reading between the lines, it almost looks like they were annoyed he didn't hand over the money.....and maybe they wanted to spoil The Dark Knight premiere for him?

That is bad...and it does look like sour grapes because he wouldn't hand money to them    thats crazy...and would you do that to a family member  too? To just teach him a lesson??   ...Get him arrested for that?....but they probably know now they will get payed by papers and mags for their story and money seems to be the important thing to them

They might be thinking too that'll he'll be named and shamed by the press and made out to be a miser who doesn't give money to his family.......I hope that's not the case, but it looks like it.

He apparently made a statement saying that he considers the incident a very personal matter ...in other words he won't be talking about it..I do think it was wrong of his family to go to the police unless he actually did something seriously to warrant and from that I mean really hurt them but they hadn't a scratch by all reports

It was legal sources who said about the £100,000 but Bale's denied the claims through his solicitor........very strange  

I can see why he'd want to keep it private......he's on a tour promoting Dark Knight so he wouldn't want anything overshadowing that.
