The Dark Knight star Christian Bale has been arrested after allegedly assaulting his mother and sister.

Bale is alleged to have attacked his mother Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, at London's Dorchester Hotel on Sunday night. The pair filed their allegation at a police station in Hampshire, England, on Monday.

A Scotland Yard spokesman says: "A 34-year-old man attended a London Police Station on Tuesday by appointment and was arrested in connection with an allegation of assault. He currently remains in custody."
