Looks like Batman…er, the Dark Knight…I mean, actor Christian Bale will dodge those pesky assault charges aimed at him by his sister and mom.
Turns out prosecutors find there is insufficient evidence for a “realistic prospect of conviction” and Bale will not face charges related to an alleged assault on the gals in London last month.
According to Bale's mother, Jenny, and sister Sharon, who made the report at a police station in Hampshire, the alleged incident took place at the actor's hotel on the night of the film's London premiere. Bale has denied the allegation.
UK tabloid The Sun reported that the kindly British police waited a day to question the actor, to give him time to attend the premiere of the now massively successful film. Bale was questioned for several hours at a police station before being released on bail.
According to The Associated Press, prosecutors said the decision not to pursue the case was based in part on "the feelings of Bale's mother and sister."
