UPDATE:Batman star Christian Bale has left a London police station after being questioned over claims he assaulted his mother and sister. Mr Bale is alleged to have lashed out at his mother and sister in his suite at London’s Dorchester Hotel on Sunday. A Metropolitan Police spokesman earlier said Bale was in custody after being arrested in connection with an allegation of assault. Scotland Yard reportedly has said Bale has been ordered to appear in September on the charges.

Last night, London Police allowed Batman star Christian Bale to attend the biggest film premiere of the summer last night despite him being accused of assault.

Bale, 34, faces questioning over the claim made by his own mother and sister. Christian was able to attend the first European screening of new Batman blockbuster “The Dark Knight” in London’s West End. He is accused of lashing out on Sunday night at Park Lane’s Dorchester Hotel — where he has a suite. His mom Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, who lives in Dorset, went to a police station in Hampshire yesterday to lodge the allegation. The matter was referred to the Met Police.

Detectives, well aware of last night’s glittering bash, made the decision not to approach Bale yesterday. But they are expected to try to question him today. A source said:

It was a very difficult situation but it would have been wrong to have wrecked the premiere over a complaint which we don’t yet know is founded in truth. But Mr Bale will be contacted at the earliest opportunity and be asked to provide an account of anything that happened.

A Met Police spokesman said: “We can confirm we have received allegation from another force in relation to an alleged incident in central London.”

WTF did Christian DO? Is he still in character? Were his mom and sister pissed ‘cuz he didn’t take them to the London premier? Was he just hammered? Snarkista MUST know. And therefore will be digging diligently around!
