While other Brat Packers of the 80s such as Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader are enjoying success with the Marvel universe, one fellow actor hasn't been so lucky. It looks like Anthony Michael Hall could be spending the next 7 years in prison. This arrest comes after he reportedly attacked his neighbor for leaving a gate open.
Anthony Michael Hall made a name for himself in the 80s starring in John Hughes' original teen comedy trilogy, starting with Sixteen Candles in 1984 followed by both Breakfast Club and Weird Science in 1985. The actor, who is now 48 years old, has been charged with felony of battery with serious bodily injury by the Los Angeles County District Attorney. This news was first reported by TMZ.
The incident took place roughly two months ago. Hall reportedly broke his neighbor's wrist before injuring the individual's back in an altercation that took place outside their respective homes in Playa del Rey, California. In security footage obtained by TMZ, a man identified as Hall can be seen arguing with another individual before pushing that person to the ground.
The fight broke out over a gate that was left open by Hall's neighbor. The two had an earlier altercation in 2011, which resulted in Anthony Michael Hall being arrested for suspicion of disturbing the peace in that neighborhood. At the time, onlookers claimed that Hall was screaming obscentities before challenging unknown individuals to a fist fight in the street.
Anthony Michael Hall has been making a quiet comeback over the past couple of years. He was last seen on the big screen in the 2014 award season drama Foxcatcher. He also has a key role in Ben Affleck's Live by Night, starring opposite Brendan Gleeson and Sienna Miller. The actor got his start with the iconic role of Rusty Griswold in the first Vacation movie, and he was also in Edward Scissorhands. He also joined Robert Downey Jr. back in the 80s as Saturday Night Live's youngest cast member. We'll have more on this story as it breaks.
