UPDATE: Christian Bale arrested for allegedly assaulting his mother

July 22nd, 2008 // 89 Comments

Christian Bale was picked up by Scotland Yard this morning after his mother and sister claimed he assaulted them in his London hotel room Sunday night. Police didn’t arrest Christian for questioning yesterday because of The Dark Knight premiere. Also, he’s not considered a flight risk (Really? Batman?) and the cops don’t quite believe the seriousness of the allegations, according to The Sun:

A source said: “It was a very difficult situation but it would have been wrong to have wrecked the premiere over a complaint which we don’t yet know is founded in truth.”

It’s a probably a simple matter of Christian wanting to sleep in his cape, but his mom wouldn’t let him. So he hung her from the balcony by her ankle and left a note for Commissioner Gordon. Ha ha! Kids.

UPDATE: TMZ is reporting the alleged assault was most likely verbal which apparently you can get arrested for in England. Ah, those wacky Brits. Christian Bale has already been released and his reps issued the following 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.”

    First!

    Holy shit!

    You win a prize for First. You get tea bagged by Vern Troyer. Congrats!

    He’s a serious martial artist. His mom is 60. WTF? This sounds trumped up to me. Maybe his mom and sister got caught sleeping with Adam West, the original batman, and Christian flipped out?

    I’m guessing mom was sneaking out with the keys to the Batmobile and he stopped her. Bad idea, mom…

  5. JC Denton

    This is fake. Has to be.

  6. So Batman is really an asshole. The Joker was right!

    #2 – great post. Yes, #1 should be t-bagged for being a douche.

  7. Bob

    Sounds like his family is looking for money.

  8. Deacon Jones

    Man, this guy lost a shitload of mass compared to American Psycho

    If beating the shit out of my mother and sister is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

  10. Wasn’t his kid there too? Domestic that got out of hand?

  11. Where's Darkwing Duck?

    As someone with a mother and sister, I firmly believe that those bitches had it coming. He’s Batman Bitch!

    Somebody a little pissy because Heath Ledger is getting all the attention?

  16. BigJim

    Bitch probably had it coming. I bet she made him eat his brussel sprouts and he just lost it.

    I watched a bio on him and his father left his mom in England and took him to LA so he could work on his career. Perhaps the mom and sister still feel bitter about it and proceeded to bug him about it or money or something; and they finally got a negative response from him. I am not excusing his behavior but the entire story has not come out.

    @15:

    Spindoc: you still hanging around this shithole? I took a couple years off because my therapist told me to.

  19. pepperpotts

    If they’re anything like my mom and sister, they’re total bitches that made up the whole thing to jump on his gravy train. Families suck ass, especially when yours are a bunch of cock suckers like mine!
    And Christian Bale is the hottest batman ever…

  20. noname

    Isn’t assault just the threat of physical violence whereas battery refers to unwanted physical contact? If so, then all he did was threaten to harm them. (Not excusing his behavior, but haven’t most of us done that to various family members?)

  21. Where's Darkwing Duck?

    @20:
    Exactly, Fathers, Mothers, Sisters & Brothers are not like, Boyfriends, Girlfriends, Husbands & Wives.
    Who can honestly say they have never punched their sister in the face because she’s a stupid whore, or told their parents they were going to kill them in a violent explosion.
    You grow up with these shitheads. You didn’t choose them.

  22. me

    U can look at this guy and tell he has an anger management problem. Movie is good but this guy looks like a freak’n douche.

  23. jay

    Christian Bale can hit WHOEVER THE FUCK HE WANTS.

  24. veggi

    I love this. Everybody’s falling down, knocking heads in their rush to fellate everybody associated with Batman, making Heath Ledger out to be the greatest actor of his generation and Christian Bale the most humble, nicest guy, willing to step aside for Heath’s legacy. It turns out – SURPRISE – Ledger was a loser druggie and unfit dad, and Bale was so good in American Psycho because he is one.

    Time to stop pretending to bash while waiting desperately for a chance to suck the celebrity cock. If you can (I doubt it). I see arthritis of the knees and jaws in your futures.

    If you look at the lack of emotion on his daughter’s face in the 2nd pic………you can tell that he has probably smacked her around plenty as well.

  26. noname

    “If you look at the lack of emotion on his daughter’s face in the 2nd pic………you can tell that he has probably smacked her around plenty as well.”

    Yanno, I noticed that too. Her gaze is creepily piercing and blank. Hoping it is just a bad picture…

    I don’t know what to make of this. He doesn’t seem like the kinda guy to blow up like that. I guess you never know. However, this is The Sun reporting so I’ll wait till I hear some reports from a reputable paper.

  29. pinky_nip

    I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for slapping my ass.

  30. Victor

    Best part? These pictures were on TMZ-TV (the vid, actually) last night and they were going on and on about what a great guy he is. *SMACK*

  31. asshat

    @26,27 or the daughter was pissed at all the fucking paps in her grill

  32. noname

    “…or the daughter was pissed at all the fucking paps in her grill”

    This is true.

  33. washington

    He’s The Goddamn Batman.

    Also: Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?

  34. Jane

    It’s being reported that he was charged with VERBAL assault. I didn’t know one could be charged with that. And what sort of mother and sister go to the police about something like this ? Bet you they’re the ones who are off their rockers.

  35. Is it wrong that I’d like to be slapped around by Christian Bale?

  36. Matt

    He probably just scared them by talking to them in his Batman voice.

  37. DID ANYONE CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE YET!?!?

  38. DID ANYONE CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE?

    On a related note, when I was young I always wanted to see Linda Carter’s breasts.

  46. Ned from NJ

    I was keenly disappointed when I finally found naked Linda Carter pics on the internet. Of course, maybe the pictures were perfectly ok but by the time I found them I was totally hooked on “big wet asses”.

    (I suppose that comment belongs more on the Kim K thread)

    @ #24 –

    Damn it veggi – I hate it when I agree with you. You’re absolutely right on this one, though.

  49. #5, you post on HornFans?

  50. Jack Sparrow

    The batman character has really taken a slide to the toilet since the Bruce Waine days, very sad.
    Junkies and dipshits – plenty of those to go around.
