"Arrow's" Manu Bennett Charged With Assault

"Arrow" actor Manu Bennett was arrested early Sunday in San Antonio, Texas, and charged with misdemeanor assault while in town for Alamo City Comic Con.

According to KENS Channel 5, San Antonio police were called to the Grand Hyatt hotel for "an assault in progress." Booking records indicate Bennett was taken into custody following a physical altercation, and charged with assault causing bodily injury. No further details about the incident have been released.

The actor was held on $1,600, and released about 1 p.m. Sunday. The planned "Villains of 'Arrow'" panel at Alamo City was canceled.

Bennett is best known in comics circles for playing Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Oliver Queen's mentor turned adversary, on the first three seasons of "Arrow." His credits also include "The Hobbit" (the Orc chieftain Azog), "Spartacus" (Crixus) and the upcoming "Shannara Chronicles" (Allanon).
