Actor Anthony Michael Hall was arrested on Monday night for being bad behavior including being obnoxious to his neighbors before police booked him on suspicion of disturbing the peace.
The neighbor told officers from the LAPD Pacific Division that Hall tore up plants in a common area of their condominium. The neighbor then made a citizen’s arrest after the actor yelled at people in the complex and pounded on doors.
Hall allegedly responded with an obscenity and threatened to “beat him to a pulp.” A short time later, The actor knocked on the man’s front door and when the neighbor opened, he told him to come outside to fight. The man slammed the door and called the police.
Hall was booked on suspicion of disturbing the peace, and released shortly after midnight.
Hall’s films with director-screenwriter John Hughes included films “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club” and “Weird Science” in the 1980s. His performances as lovable geeks in these three films connected his name and face with the stereotype for an entire generation.
Before Monday’s incident, he became a regular subject of tabloid media after New York Magazine named him a member of the “Brat Pack,” the group of young actors who became famous in the 1980s and frequently starred together.
“The truth is, I had my partying nights, but I never really bounced at the bottom,” Hall said. “I never went to rehab… I was able to govern myself and continue my work,” he added.
