Celebrity Big Brother's Michael Madsen arrested after fight with his son

Michael Madsen (Celebrity Big Brother)

Celebrity Big Brother finalist Michael Madsen was arrested in the States last night after a "family dispute" with his son got out of hand.

The Daily Mirror report that Michael -who finished fifth in the series earlier this year - was taken into custody by police yesterday afternoon.

The Reservoir Dogs star said in a statement via his lawyer: "Michael found his son smoking pot and they got in an argument when he tried to take it away.

"It's a family matter and Michael asks that his family's privacy be respected."

The newspaper says that police have charged Michael with "child endangerment with cruelty to a child"

And surprisingly Michael Madsen wasn't the only Celebrity Big Brother star to be arrested yesterday, with rapper Coolio also being forced to spend time in a cell.

The Ultimate Big Brother star, who was ejected from the show after arguments with Nadia, was picked up by police after failing to appear in court over a 2010 traffic ticket.
