No Bail for Bale - Charges Dropped

I don't have an on-line source for this, saw it last night on "Countdown" at the end of the show. The charges against Christian Bale have been dropped. No evidence. Prosecutors even voiced that something seemed fishy with the whole thing -- like so many of us said. So all is well that end's well.

I think it was to do with his mum and sister being raging drunkards (you know, alcohol turns people temporarily incoherent and sociopathic).

Christian Forgived

Well, I guess you can't forgive him if they say he hasn't done it but I was trying to come up with another bad pun.

I find it funny that yelling at someone may be considered assault.

Re: No Bail for Bale - Charges Dropped

I found this on Perez Hilton's site:

And, according to a recent newspaper article, the real reason for the argument was the result of his mother and sister asking him for £100,000 ( about $213,880.87).
Crazy asses. You think after getting the cops involved he's even going to give you a penny?
I thought the timing was pretty suspect, given that the movie was on its way to making $400 million

Yelling immediate physical threats of bodily harm wouldn't be assault, in your book? Would it be any crime at all?

He got it from Countdown and guest host Rachel Maddow admitted it was a bad pun, but she "had to do it."

I don't think he was ever charged actually, so technically the charges weren't dropped.

Look it's all a bit technical, but the important thing is that his future is safe.

I'd say it was dependent on context and surrounding situation. I say threatening behaviour is just that, and not really assault, but probably down to emotional resonance rather than actual legal definition of the words.
