Michael Madsen, best known for roles in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill movies and Reservoir Dogs, was arrested Friday afternoon in Malibu and booked on felony charges of child endangerment with cruelty to a child, reports People. The actor, 54, was allegedly intoxicated and engaged in a fight with his teenage son when police arrived at his Malibu home in response to a family disturbance call. Madsen was released on $100,000 bail. UPDATE: Per E! Online, Madsen was cleared of the charges due to insufficient evidence. Madsen has called the entire ordeal a “big misunderstanding.”
