Law enforcement officials tell TMZ ... cops originally responded to a call about a disturbance in Hiltz's West Hollywood apartment.

After cops checked out the situation, officers made the decision to arrest Hiltz and take the minor child into protective custody.  The 32-year-old actress was taken to a nearby station where she was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor child neglect around 3:30 AM.

Hiltz has since been released from custody.

Hiltz's attorney tells TMZ, "It was an unfortunate misunderstanding. No charges have been filed and absolutely no harm was done to the child."

@peterson01,

Irrational, much?

They renewed the show for 2 more seasons last July. But it's a different story now. At 2.6 million total viewers, they would be cancelled already if they weren't produced by NBC Universal. So, it's nepotism that's keeping them still around, but at a weaker time slot, Sundays.

Even as little as I know Nichole, I'm simply not buying it. Period. Nice talented person. For those of you who don't know her (yet) she's definitely still on the way up. Best wishes to her in getting things resolved asap.

I call BS. Nichole is a total sweetheart and great person all around, just not the type. If it is a nosy neighbor, I'm sure the po-po are just playing it safe.
