Madsen was taken into custody after police responded to a family dispute at his home. When cops arrived, they found Madsen appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and had gotten into a fight with his son, who is a minor. The police found signs of injury on the boy, though not enough to require medical attention.
TMZ reports the charge was cruelty to a child, which is considered a felony.
Madsen starred in movies like “Reservoir Dogs” and “Kill Bill,” and currently has 16 movies in various stages of production listed on his IMDb page.
