LOS ANGELES — “Reservoir Dogs” star Michael Madsen said the alleged fight with his juvenile son that saw him charged with felony child endangerment was a “big misunderstanding,” according to a new report.

Madsen, 54, spent Friday night behind bars after being arrested at his Malibu home. He was released from Lost Hills station on $100,000 bail early Saturday morning.

Police were notified of a family dispute at the property Friday afternoon. The son, whose age was not reported, was found injured but he did not require medical attention.

Madsen, who was arrested shortly before 4:00pm local time, appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, TMZ reported. His mug shot showed him unshaven and with his hair disheveled.

The actor’s lawyer, Perry Wander, later claimed the argument sparked when Madsen found his son smoking cannabis and attempted to take it away. He described the dispute as a “family matter” and requested privacy.

Rape suit filed against Snoop Dogg – latimes

A celebrity makeup artist has filed a $25-million lawsuit against rapper Snoop Dogg, alleging he and several men in his entourage drugged and raped her two years ago.

The woman also claims that one of Snoop Dogg’s associates beat her after a taping of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show, which the rapper guest-hosted in January 2003. The lawsuit was filed Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

In addition, the suit names ABC Inc. and its parent, Walt Disney Co. The woman identifies herself in the documents, but Associated Press is withholding her name because of its policy against naming alleged rape victims.

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, filed a lawsuit Dec. 11 alleging that the woman had been trying to extort $5 million in exchange for keeping silent. He is seeking punitive damages and to bar her from future threats.

The woman’s attorney, Perry Wander, said she waited two years to sue because she had been trying to negotiate a settlement with the media companies.
