9/25/2006 4:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For the second time this month, "Laguna Beach" star Jason Wahler has been arrested. As Perez Hilton first reported, the LAPD arrested Wahler on Friday at 5:30PM for misdemeanor battery and set his bail at $20,000. According to LAPD documents, he was released Saturday afternoon.

According to police, Jason and a female companion, Kristen Deluca, were involved in an altercation with a Department of Transportation officer and a tow truck driver. There was a physical altercation and police were called to the scene. After police arrived on the scene, Wahler and Deluca were both arrested for battery.

The reality show star was busted three weeks ago in New York and charged with one count each of disorderly conduct, possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and bribery. According to the court documents, Wahler was obstructing traffic by standing in the street and creating a public disturbance. Officers then attempted to handcuff the 19-year-old, but he resisted. When they performed a search on him, they allegedly found cocaine in his pants pocket. Wahler then allegedly tried to bribe officers into letting him go.
