Ahmed Ahmed -- the comic who stars in the TBS sitcom "Sullivan & Son" -- was arrested for domestic violence in L.A. last night ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops responded to a caller who claimed people were fighting inside of a home.

When cops arrived to the scene, they discovered Ahmed and a female (believed to be his girlfriend) ... and we're told the woman had "visible marks."

Ahmed was immediately arrested for felony domestic violence and hauled to a nearby jail where he was booked. He was later released on $50k bail.

As for the woman, we're told she did not require medical treatment for her injuries.

Ahmed is pretty big on the comedy circuit -- and has appeared in a bunch of TV shows and movies including "Iron Man," "Punk'd" and "You Don't Mess with the Zohan."

I am very saddened by this whole thing. The girlfriend in question is Alicia Kirby from McMinnville, TN. As a regular patron and comedy fan, and also knowing Ahmed for many years, I had the misfortune of meeting her several times when he brought her around the Hollywood comedy scene. She was nothing but loud, drunk, disrespectful, and always dramatic. Everyone thought so.

I was told she moved to LA with Ahmed, and after a series of arguments that ended up with her throwing a drink in his face at a restaurant, he asked her to move out after only living in his home for 9 days. Out of pure shame and embarrassment, she called the police on him, in a very inebriated state, claiming domestic violence, only because she needed a good story to tell her family and friends so they wouldn't ridicule her.

In short, the charges were dropped due to lack of ANY evidence, and TMZ retracted the story. Although I condemn domestic violence, it's to easy for irresponsible and naive women to abuse the system. According to Alicia Kirby's Twitter and Instagram (@SallyK01), she seems to be keeping up her drinking and hard partying habits, so nothing has really changed for her, while Ahmed's name and reputation have been tarnished because everyone believes the first thing they read. Do your research people!
