Trailer Park Boys Actor, Mike Smith, who plays Bubbles in the series was arrested over the suspicion of domestic violence around 1:15 am on Friday at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. The actor has denied of doing anything wrong.
Mike has been allegedly accused of assaulting his female friend in the hotel’s bathroom. Sources say that the two had a heated argument.
“Mike and I did indeed have a heavy argument but it saddens me the way things are being reported and the way it was handled by the police. At no point did I feel I was in danger, otherwise I would’ve called the police myself, which I did not. The police were called by others not present in the room who mistakenly perceived the argument to be something other than what it was. When the officers arrived I tried to assure them there was no real issue, but they proceeded to arrest Mike,” Georgia, who is the friend of Michael alleged to be abused said in a press release, US Today reports. US Today.
While sources have something else to say, they say that they have “heard the woman say you are choking me”. “They saw Smith pinning the woman against the bathroom wall,” TMZ reports.
“Georgia is a friend of mine and we had a loud and heated dispute. That is all. At no time did I assault her. I am not guilty of the misdemeanour charged against me,” Smith said. Though the actor has been released on the bail of $26045 just after 5 a.m, People reports.
