Lou Diamond Phillips Charged With Battery

9/21/2006 8:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lou Diamond PhillipsActor Lou Diamond Phillips was charged with domestic battery late Thursday by the City Attorney of Los Angeles. As TMZ first reported, Phillips was arrested and booked on August 11, 2006 for an argument with his girlfriend that turned physical. Police were called to the actor's home around 2:00 a.m. and found the couple in a heated argument.

TMZ has obtained documents, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, that say Phillips "unlawfully used force and violence upon the person." The charge comes with a maximum of one year in jail and a $2000 dollar fine.

Phillips is due back in court for arraignment on October 18, 2006.

A call to Phillips' reps was not immediately returned.

Maybe Lou Diamond Phillips was angry because he has had too many box office bombs, he got frustrated by too many bad movie reviews by critics and so forth. But I just don't accept this at all with what he did to that woman. He should be in JAIL! She needs to leave him when she can, because this fellow is out of control and overly violent. And I'm not going to watch another movie with Lou in it AGAIN!!!! I hope your next movie BOMBS big time and has empty seats in the movie theatres!!!!!

Gary, it's not ok for a woman to hit a man either. I don't condone that behavior as a woman, unless it's self defense.

I think "Stephanie" is a guy, and a dumb one at that.

And to the others trying to defend a women beater. This is not the first time Lou has been arrested for domestic violence and this is not the only women to have reported him to the police. So statistically it won’t be his last either. No one should hit someone else, man or women. You can still like his acting that’s a separate issue, but don’t try to defend this punks behavior. Unless you live in the south and have no teeth, because that’s the picture that comes to mind.
