(Newser) Batman star Christian Bale was arrested today in London after his mother and sister accused him of assaulting them in his hotel suite over the weekend, the Daily Mail reports. The women lodged their complaints yesterday, but police waited until after last night’s London premiere of The Dark Knight to question him.

Bale made bail and released a statement through his lawyers denying the allegation, People reports.
