Jeremy London Will Be Charged for Alleged Baby Mama Attack

Jeremy London will be charged with domestic violence -- a month after the actor allegedly beat up his baby mama in Palm Springs -- this according to the Riverside County D.A.'s office.

As we previously reported ... cops were on the lookout for London to question him about the fight -- during which he allegedly injured his estranged wife Melissa Cunningham.

According to police, the ex-couple was fighting over custody of their son -- and London flew off the handle ... then beat a hasty retreat. London's lawyers have since been in communication with cops.

Now, a rep for the D.A. tells TMZ, the office has made a decision to charge London with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence. If convicted, London faces a year in jail.

4:05 PM PT: A rep for Jeremy tells us, "The allegation is false and no such abuse occurred. It is unfortunate that the DA's Office has elected to reward Melissa's malicious behaviour and disregard the facts regarding the incident."
