From Associated Press

Actor Josh Brolin was cited for misdemeanor domestic battery over the weekend after his wife, actress Diane Lane, called police during an argument at the couple’s home.

Brolin, the son of actor James Brolin and stepson of Barbra Streisand, was arrested around 3 a.m. Sunday and released on $20,000 bail, Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the city attorney’s office, said Monday.

The city attorney is reviewing the case, and no charges have been filed, he said. Domestic battery is a misdemeanor, he said.


Kelly Bush, the couple’s spokeswoman, said the incident was a “misunderstanding” and the couple had reconciled.

Brolin, 36, and Lane, 39, were married in an August ceremony on Brolin’s ranch. Lane starred in “Unfaithful” and “Under the Tuscan Sun.”
