Mikaela Spielberg, the adopted daughter of film director and Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg was arrested in Tennessee on assault charges, police said.
The 23-year-old was arrested and charged with domestic assault causing bodily injury and taken to a jail in Nashville after reportedly throwing objects that caused an “observable injury,” reported WZTV-TV.
Officers said Spielberg and her fiancé, 47-year-old Chuck Pankow, got into an argument after returning home from a bar just before 4:00 a.m. on Feb. 29. The incident escalated after the victim, who was not identified, made a “rude comment” toward Spielberg and she then began throwing objects at him, injuring his wrist and hand.
Spielberg was released later that Saturday from the Nashville jail on a $1,000 bail, jail records showed.
Jail records didn’t indicate whether she has an attorney who could comment on the charge. A March 9 court hearing on the charge was scheduled.
Spielberg was born on Feb. 28, 1996, and currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee. She is adopted as a child by Steven Spielberg and his wife of 29 years, Kate Capshaw.
