Christian Bale Accused Of Assault: Batman Don’t Make Us Quit You

So yeah. Batman. The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. In jail in London after being accused of assaulting his mother and sister. Bale turned himself in after the London screening of The Dark Knight — a deal he worked out in advance because officials said, “it would have been wrong to have wrecked the premiere over a complaint which we don’t yet know is founded in truth.” Uh, okay. Anyway, this is depressing. We love Christian Bale. His deceased dad was married to Gloria Steinem for heaven’s sake, how could he actually assault two women?! Bale hasn’t responded to the assault charges yet, but we’ll keep you posted. [Sun U.K.]

Update: Is it wrong that my heart did a little happy dance upon reading that Bale may have been arrested for verbal assault not physical? I mean, that’s less depressing right? [TMZ]
Update Again: Sue me, I am obsessed. So it seems like this whole thing maybe was blown out of proportion. Bale’s sister and mom say they didn’t call the police to the scene of the “incident”. His sister called it a “family situation” that is extremely “sensitive”. FYI, I totally just learned him mom was a circus clown. Clowns are scary. The Joker looked like a clown. I wonder if there is a connection. Whatever, I am just so glad it looks like Batman isn’t a woman beater. [Us Weekly]
