Actor Josh Brolin was arrested at his Los Angeles home on Sunday on charges of hitting his wife of four months, Diane Lane.

The Hollow Man star, 36, was charged with spousal battery and released after posting $20,000 (€14,900) bail, says the couple's spokeswoman, Kelly Bush.

Bush says: "There was a misunderstanding at their home," adding that the arrest was "for the lowest-end misdemeanour charge of domestic battery".

She adds: "Diane did not want to press charges and asked them not to arrest him, but in cases involving the possibility of any physical contact, the police have to arrest first, ask questions later."

Bush says the two are back together in their home "and are embarrassed the matter went this far".

Brolin is due back in court on January 13, Los Angeles police officer Grace Brady tells New York's Daily News.

The actor, who is the son of James Brolin, married the Oscar-nominated actress in a private ceremony at his California ranch in August. It was a second marriage for both.
