One of the tough kid security guards from "Project X" was arrested yesterday after allegedly getting physical with his girlfriend ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ -- deputies received a call from someone around 4:30 pm claiming 'X' star Nick Nervies had been arguing with his girlfriend and it escalated in a bad way.

It's unclear what happened but when cops arrived the alleged victim had minor injuries -- not serious enough for an ambulance.

The 18-year old actor was cuffed and taken to a nearby jail where he was booked on misdemeanor domestic violence charges.
