This should be in off-topic.

NO. I heard about this today. He is one of my favorite and most respected actors. This can't be true!

When I first heard this, I pulled a Darth Vader from Episode 3:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

He's one of my favorite actors, I hope he doesn't go to jail. Unless of course he actually did assault his family members, then he definitely should.

Yeah, not very good news at what should be a high time for him.

Remember to post stuff like this in Off Topic in future. General discussion still has to be video game related.

Off topic thread belongs in off topic.
Well, ON topic (for the thread) I just read about this on Yahoo, and that is pretty crazy. Of course, how many celebrities go to prison? I think Bale's arrest isn't really a huge deal.

Big deal. People have problems, - he's still human. They could have been hitting him up for money, or black mailing him, or a number of things. Who knows. Why speculate? Personal business.

Did he actually just yell at them or what?  I mean if they went to the premiere with him they couldnt have been too shook up.  It will only take time to actually tell what happened.

Wait, physical or verbal assault? Even I sometimes argue with my mother, but it never gets physical.

I dont care if he plays Batman, he's still an asshole for doing this.

Although, he could get out on Bale ...

Well maybe being the Batman in the movies got to him or something?
But it's just suspicion of  assault and he's already out on bail or something.

**UPDATE**

"Posted Jul 22nd 2008 12:30PM by TMZ Staff

There are reports circulating that Christian Bale was arrested for verbal assault, and one of Bale's rep is echoing that. Who knew, but we called around jolly old England and found there is such a thing as verbal assault, Class 4 and Class 5. Class 4 is more aggravated than 5, with "an intent to cause alarm."

Man, I love the puns posted at Digg

"Looks like Bale needs Bail...."

"It wasn't very "Christian" of him."

"I wonder if he hit them with a bat, man."

While not a pun, I do love this one: "It was probably Harvey Dent, Bale's just taking the fall"

Celebs are no different than us regular people.  They don't go beating each other up because they have more money.  The only reason it seems to happen alot is because people like you keep classifying them as "different".  They are human.  Get over it.

I am quite sure Bale isn't the first person to be accused of hurting family members, just like I am sure that Lindsay Lohan wasn't the first person to snort cocaine.

I agree with you. But it was verbal, not physical assault.

Oh whatever, he's not going to prison. "Stars" get arrested all the time and most of the time miraculously avoid bars. Unless he sent his mom or sister to the hospital they'll drop the charges and boom, over.

If anyone can hit their mother and sister, It's Christian Bale.

They probably said he needed to tone down his voice in the movie and Bale went haywire.
