Sean Bean spends time in custody for domestic assaultJuly 26th, 2008 - 2:39 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 26 (IANS) The “Lord of the Rings” star Sean Bean has been arrested for domestic assault after his wife Georgina called the police. He was reportedly kept in custody for six hours. The couple have had similar fights earlier also but Georgina maintained that everything was fine between them after the recent row, thesun.co.uk reported.
She said: “Everything is ok. Sean and I are at home together enjoying the sunshine. He was arrested, but everything was blown out of proportion. The police held him quite a while, but Sean is fine and I’m fine. There’s no problem between us.”
Bean was detained two years back as well.
An inside source said of the earlier incident: “There was a lot of shouting and hollering and Mrs. Bean rang 999 and told the operator she was being attacked. There were no punches or kicking and nothing really nasty. It was pushing and shoving, but she clearly felt threatened. He was arrested and taken to the nearest custody suite at Holborn. He denied being a wife batterer and said it was a domestic row that got out of hand.”
