'X-Men' Star Suspect in Weed Wacking Assault

6/1/2011 5:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jason Beghe -- one of the stars of "X-Men: First Class" and a veteran actor -- is under criminal investigation for allegedly attacking a man who was wacking weeds on his property, TMZ has learned.

According to the incident report, Daniel Montalvo was using a weed wacker on Beghe's Malibu property last week when the device malfunctioned.  Cops tell us ... a frustrated Montalvo "mistreated the device."  That pissed off Beghe, who then got into a loud confrontation with Montalvo which became physical.

Montalvo went to the Malibu cop shop and filed a report.  The Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station  investigated the incident and sent the case to the D.A. for possible misdemeanor battery prosecution against Beghe. 

Beghe was convicted in 2009 with accosting a process server.

Beghe is also featured on "Californication," and has appeared in "Eli Stone," "Ghost Wisperer," "Matlock," and our fav -- "Jake and the Fat Man."

Beghe -- an ex-Scientologist -- tells TMZ, "It's probably the Church of Scientology f**king with me.  They have it out for me."

It probably is the Cult of Scientology F'n with him. They are crazy. Or maybe this dude is just crazy. Either way, that is a lot of crazy going on.

Well, he had no choice, right? After all, the weed wacker guy did mistreat the device, right? I hope he reported the other guy to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Devices.

Heh, I figured it was going to be because he was chopping down some expensive plants (go to a nursery and see how much plants cost!). Pretty hilarious that it was just because the guy was bashing his own weedwacker.

@andymc,

TMZ considers anyone that ever appeared in TV or film to be a "star". Just look at how much press they give people that were on one episode of a reality show 10 years ago.

Never whack your weed on another man's property or his wife's face.

Hi Louanne! That was fast.

Commenters Les Li and Victor are really just Louanne who works for the Cult of Scientology's Office of Special Affairs (OSA), their CIA and dirty tricks division.

She trolls the internet using Louanne and other aliases posting endlessly in support of the cult and denigrating any critics. Check the IP's and you will see they are coming from Scientology servers in Clearwater, FL or LA.

Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNUjMz9-W2I to see the interview with Jason Beghe and why he has every right to be angry with the cult. Also Google my name to find out even more evil these suckers are.
Scientology ...it is WORSE than you think.

Oh, that's what Beghe is doing now, whacking weed??? A truly amusing angle. Bad luck for that gardener to work for someone who tends to whack people too.
