Hayden Christensen's Bro Arrested for Assault

9/2/2009 9:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tove & Hayden ChristensenTMZ has learned Hayden Christensen's brother, producer Tove Christensen, was arrested early this morning for felony assault with a deadly weapon -- when he allegedly dragged his girlfriend around 30 feet after she clung to the side of his car.

LAPD responded to a 911 call in Hollywood around 2:30 AM after an argument broke out between the couple. Witnesses told law enforcement that Christensen pushed her to the ground and hopped in his car -- but when his GF reached inside to grab her purse, Tove hit the gas and dragged her down the street.

When police arrived, the girlfriend had visible marks on her arm. They later tracked down Tove at his L.A. home and arrested him.

He's currently being held on $30,000 bail.

Tove -- seen here on the left -- produced brother Hayden's movie "Shattered Glass," and according to his Wiki, had one line in one episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

I agree with #13. Let's see how much attention this one gets...if it's true that is. I think the problem is guys that are fighting their homosexual tendencies. How else could you BEAT UP a lady unless your deep feelings are mostly feminine? If you're gay and don't want to be, you're going to be an angry MF. Ryan Jenkins, Chris Brown, and now this guy. If you are truly attracted to and respect women, you don't hit them. And we're not talking a slap, we're talking a full on beat down. That's the most cowardly, chicken sh1t thing a guy can do. I don't care what she did or said. Unless your life is in danger, be a man and walk away. Or go to jail and then all your dreams come true. No women to piss you off, and a bunch of guys to give you all the attention you could ever dream of.

Ahaha the only reason this won't get as much attention as Chris Brown did isn't because he's white and CB is black, it's because CB is WAY more famous than this mofo. Put the racist cards away b1tches.

Lock him up. Let him deal with the inmates who despise a-holes who abuse women and children. I hope his cellie is a 250-pound horny freak who is looking for a nice bottom.

Totally agree, jp. Race has NOTHING to do with this. It's all about fame. If it were Hayden, this story would blow up.

Black guy accused of hitting his g-friend, pleads guilty and is condemned by society.

White guy shoves g-friend to the ground, then drags her with his car, story goes into obscurity.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Unlike the white guy, the black guy is a famous celeb as is the woman he attacked. Of course the white guy's story is going to go into obscurity, he's a nobody whose just the brother of a celeb. If it had been Hayden, it would likely be all over the news.

FRY THE GUY    

The cops should fry this guy and make an example of him. Poor Hayden what a looser he has as a brother. That girl should sue him for millions and she deserves it as any man who would do something like that as it that could have killed her.
