Christian Bale to be let off with caution for assaultAugust 14th, 2008 - 2:21 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 14 (IANS) Actor Christian Bale won’t have to go to court to settle the matter of his assault on his mother and sister at a five-star hotel in London. He will be let off with just a caution. Bale, 34, was arrested after he reportedly “pushed and shoved” his mother Jenny 61, and sister Sharon, 41.
Thesun.co.uk reports that the Crown Prosecution Service advised the police to let him off with a caution. “The Dark Knight” star will have to admit guilt to get a caution when he answers bail next month. If he refuses, he can be charged.
The assault happened after his sister reportedly asked Bale to lend her 100,000 pounds.
