Charges Dropped for Terminator Salvation Star Christian Bale

Christian Bale, star of The Dark Knight and upcoming Terminator Salvation, won't be facing assault charges for an alleged assault on his mother and sister during a family argument according to the Crown Prosecution Service.

Bale was arrested last month after an alleged assault in his suite at the Dorchester Hotel in London. His mother Jenny and sister Sharon brought a formal complaint against the actor after an altercation that took place on July 20. Bale was arrested two days later and questioned for several hours by detectives at the Belgravia police station. He was later released on bail.

A CPS spokesman said: "Taking all the factors into consideration, the decision has been taken that there is insufficient evidence to afford a realistic prospect of conviction, and accordingly the police have been advised that no further action should be taken against Mr. Bale,"said a CPS spokesperson.
