LONDON – New details are emerging in the arrest of The Dark Knight star Christian Bale.


The incident that led to the actor’s arrest reportedly occurred following a confrontation between the actor and his mother, Jenny Bale. She allegedly insulted Bale’s wife, Sandra ‘Sibi’ Blazic, according to Britain’s The Daily Mail.


A source close to Bale told the newspaper he “flew off the handle” at his London hotel when Jenny Bale said “some outrageous things” about her son and his wife.


Though The Dark Knight star was arrested and released on bail, the newspaper’s source claims Bale did nothing wrong.


“Christian was stressed, but he didn’t lay a finger on anyone. Instead, he flew off the handle and cussed his mother. He just got very loud because his mother was saying some very outrageous things about him, and his wife,” the source said.


Bale’s lawyers issued a statement Tuesday denying the allegations of assault.


The actor’s sister, Sharon Bale, told Britain’s Telegraph an “incident” had occurred but would not offer up any details surrounding the events that led to her brother’s arrest.


“OK, there was an incident but the police are dealing with it,” she said. “It is an extremely sensitive situation. There is nothing more I can say.”


Jenny Bale was also tight-lipped, but said they did not call the police.


“Yes, I was there, and yes there was a family situation, but the police are handling it and I cannot say anymore at the moment,” Jenny told the Telegraph. “We didn’t call the police to the scene. I can’t say anymore, but we didn’t call the police.”


Bale is expected to attend The Dark Knight premiere in Barcelona, Spain, on Wednesday.
