(Newser) – Police in Palm Springs are looking for Jeremy London—he of kidnapping and Celebrity Rehab fame—after the actor's girlfriend claimed that he assaulted her, reports People. The unnamed girlfriend says that London assaulted her outside her home after an argument over custody of their child turned nasty. London's people are denying the allegation, and say he's "cooperating" fully with authorities. "We anticipate Jeremy to be cleared of any wrongdoing as he continues to enjoy fatherhood and embrace sobriety," says a rep.

"This is a false allegation and we understand that the police have to follow protocol in issuing and arrest warrant—standard when any woman files a complaint of domestic abuse," London's rep continued. "However, no such abuse occurred and these allegations will soon be proven false."
