Word is trickling in that fan favorite Manu Bennett (Arrow, Spartacus, The Hobbit) was arrested over the weekend on a misdemeanor assault charge while in San Antonio for Alamo City Comic Con. Police haven’t released any details besides the charges and it is unclear exactly where the incident happened.
The booking records state that Bennett was taken into custody early Sunday following an altercation. The SAPD spokesperson reported that the original call went out as ans “assault in progress” at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Downtown, which is the main convention hotel for Alamo City Comic Con.
Bennett’s bond was set at $1600, and records show that Bennett was released around 1P.M. later that Sunday.
Wisely, in my opinion, Bennett has not made any Social Media statements about the incident and there was nothing in the Alamo City Comic Con twitter feed that I could find. There was this post on the Alamo City Comic Con Facebook page which included some un-comfirmed rumors about the incident, but take those with a huge grain of salt.
Once more information becomes available we’ll bring it to you here.
