MALIBU (CNS) – Actor Michael Madsen was released from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department custody today following his arrest in Malibu on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing.
Deputies were called about 9 p.m. Wednesday to Madsen’s rented Malibu home by the property’s owner, who detained the actor in a citizen’s arrest, according to reports from the Daily Mail and E! News.
Details were not immediately available about the circumstances.
Deputies took Madsen to West Hills Hospital before he was taken to the sheriff’s Lost Hills Station, where he was issued a $500 citation and released Thursday morning, according to LASD jail records.
Madsen’s arrest comes about a month after the death of his son Hudson — a U.S. Army soldier — who was found with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii on Jan. 25.
Madsen, 64, is best known for his roles in Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” and “Kill Bill.”
