Former Free Willy Child Star Arrested For Domestic Violence
Free Willy star Jason Richter has been arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence last week in San Fernando Valley.
The actor was released on a $20,000 bond on Wednesday with a future court date yet to be released.
The incident allegedly occurred after Richter got into an argument with his girlfriend about a co-worker and whether she was having an affair.
"Jason and his girlfriend were involved in an argument that unfortunately escalated to the point where police were called," a representative for the actor told Us Weekly.
"However, Jason vehemently denies any physical altercation.
"He is devastated that anyone has been led to believe otherwise.
"Jason was released on his own recognizance.
"The police found no visible marks or bruises, and there is every reason to believe that these false charges will be dropped."
Jason starred in the cult classic film Free Willy in 1993, as well as a number of other acting roles.
He now holds roles behind the camera producing movies and film projects.
