Jon Cryer's Ex

Arrested for Felony Child Abuse

5/29/2009 3:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Cryer & Sarah Trigger The ex-wife of Jon Cryer was arrested today and booked for felony child neglect.

TMZ has learned Sarah Trigger was taken into custody early this morning at her home in Hermosa Beach, CA. Trigger and Cryer have an 8-year-old son, but police could not confirm that their child was involved in the alleged crime.

Sources tell TMZ the child's neck had rope or cord marks when police arrived. We're told officers found a weapon on the scene that matched those marks.

Trigger's bail was set at $100,000. She was released this evening. Police say the child is safe tonight and the Department of Children and Family Services is now involved.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned the child involved in the alleged crime was NOT Jon's 8-year-old son. Police say it was Trigger's two-year-old son with her current husband.

These stories are so devoid of any facts, it is so sad that what might have been an accident is already being construed as an abuse incident. At the center of this is a child, but it's all about making some salacious news, isn't it???

This incident has nothing to do with Mike Tyson's daughter. Tyson's daughter was not 'neglected' and her death was due to an accident. I have 2 children of my own and there is NO WAY any parent can keep their eyes on their child 24 hours a day. Do you watch your child sleep? Does your child take a shower/bath when you do? Where is your child when you have to use the restroom? Where is your child when you are asleep? Where is your child when you decide to prepare a meal or clean your home (unless you are fortunate enough to have a maid). That's what I thought. Please stop making stupid accusations that lack merit.

This story is not that lengthy and we don't know all the details. Hopefully Trigger did not try to intentionally harm her child. If she did, she should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Really? You all seem ready to throw the book at somebody that you don't even know all the details about. Firstly, the husband of her 2 year old son that she is going through a divorce with is the one that made the allegations. Interesting- any of you ever gone through a custody battle or divorce, amazing what one will make up about the other in order to put a parent in a bad light. If she did abuse her child then I hope they do throw the book at her, but right now all the "evidence" is a cord mark on a two year old's neck. By the way, there are no mentions of Jon Cryer making any allegations against his ex.

I can't believe this has not been exposed yet apparently is common knowledge in key circles David Dicky is a covert , Scientologist (The Mind Benders) right honourable Hubbard would be so proud. rubs shoulders with Tavolta & Cruise He is confident he has a big star in his sights, grooming Him for Scientology's front line media circus & still he hasn't got a clue.Ha
