According to ABC 7 News Los Angeles, TJ Miller, star of Deadpool and Silicon Valley, was arrested early Friday morning.
The police report states that officers arrived to Camrose drive at around 1 AM Friday morning. Miller was later arrested on battery charges.
The LAPD has stated that the victim, whom was found on scene, was a driver for a transportation company. Upon the arrival of the authorities, the victim identified Miller and demanded that the star be arrested immediately.
Police later found Miller in his home, and arrested him on battery charges.
Later on this morning, Miller was released on bail. His bail was set at 20,000, an amount easy for a star of his stature to pay.
This arrest comes at a costly time for Miller, as the 35-year-old actor was set to have a pretty busy weekend. In addition to his newest film, Office Christmas Party, opening this weekend, Miller was set to host the Critcs' Choice Awards on Sunday night.
No statement has been made from Miller, or from the awards show, and it's highly unlikely that they would pull him from the gig.
According to TMZ, the victim was an Uber driver. The driver said that Miller slapped him in the face over an argument about President-elect Donald Trump.
TJ Miller starred as Wade Wilson's best friend Weasel in the mega-hit movie, Deadpool. The actor has also earned acclaim for his lead role in the HBO sitcom, Silicon Valley.
