11:25 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Lebeau allegedly got into a physical altercation with his fiancee and "took her to the ground."

We're told the woman told police Lebeau choked her ... but admits she struck him as well. Sources tell us Lebeau had a scratch on his face.

As for the defacing property charge -- we're told Lebeau is accused of breaking the woman's cell phone during the incident.

Lebeau is still in custody.

gray-bar-update
Bravo reality star C.J. Lebeau was arrested for assault in Arizona yesterday, TMZ has learned -- but you could barely tell from the way he was grinning in his mug shot.

FYI -- Lebeau is a marine engineer on the new reality show "Below Deck" ... which follows a bunch of good looking people who work on a fancy yacht.

The details surrounding Lebeau's arrest are sketchy at best -- but we know he was popped around 1AM Monday morning in Phoenix and charged with intentional assault and defacing property (less than $250 worth).

We also know Lebeau is described on Bravo's website as a marine engineer with a "rebellious side." Think Jacques Cousteau meets James Dean meets Camille Grammer.

Not So Fun Fact: It's not C.J.'s first run-in with the law, he has an open case in Arizona stemming from a marijuana-related arrest in May ... he's a rebel after all.

Bravo had no comment.

This show is falling apart fast. First we find out that one of the crew members, David, is an actor, and now thIs about CJ. "Below Deck" is sinking fast.

If this show is about *good looking* crew, they need to fire the casting agent.

This feeble-minded jackass is smiling as if he knows he's going to get away with it. Real winner putting his hands on a woman.

No idea who this guy is and the show he is on. You should have reported water is wet and air is what you breath. That would have been a better story than this one. Come on!
