Batman's Christian Bale was arrested in London Tuesday, following assault allegations reportedly made by his own mother and sister.

He was released from the precinct station later in the afternoon, and he is to return to the station in September, a police rep tells PEOPLE.

Bale, 34, allegedly lashed out at his mother Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, on Sunday at London's Dorchester hotel, where the actor was staying before Monday's U.K. premiere of The Dark Knight.

According to Britain's the Sun newspaper, Bale's mother and sister went to a police station in Hampshire Monday, which turned the case over to London officers.

A 34-year-old man attended a central London police station this morning, by appointment, and was arrested in connection with an allegation of assault," a police spokesman told PEOPLE. "He is currently in custody.

It is a policy in England to arrest a suspect before questioning him in connection to a possible crime. Bale has not been formally charged, therefore the police did not release his name.

Late afternoon Tuesday, a police spokeswoman told PEOPLE: "A 34-year-man has been bailed to return to a central London police station on a date in September, pending further inquiries." (In England, "bailed" does not mean there is any money handed over, but rather, that the individual has been freed.)

At 4:20 p.m. London time, Bale, with a 10-man police escort, was taken from the Belgravia police station's rear exit into a blacked-out silver Mercedes people carrier and transported to the Dorchester Hotel, where he was driven into the underground entrance.

Monday the morning after the alleged incident Bale appeared on GMTV, a U.K. morning show. Bloggers called the actor grumpy, but a GMTV spokesman told PEOPLE, "He didn't seem on edge."

Bale is scheduled to be in Barcelona Thursday for the record-breaking film's Spanish-language premiere.

maybe this guy had the right intention. I mean, TDK is a pretty hard pg13.

Jesus...

Salt Lake audience was engrossed in the new action-packed Batman movie when it was interrupted. Police stopped the film to arrest a father who was watching the movie while his child sat in a locked car in the Century 16 theater parking lot.

It was almost 2 a.m. Sunday when the 2-year-old boy was finally rescued from the car. The temperature inside was 87 degrees, but that wasn't the only threat facing him.

While 23-year-old David Farnham was enjoying the 11:30 p.m. showing of "The Dark Knight" inside an air-conditioned theater at Century 16 Saturday night, his 2-year-old son, Justin, was all alone in a hot car, surrounded by signs that warn patrons to park at their own risk.

South Salt Lake police say Justin had been in the car for more than two hours when other movie goers noticed the child and called for help.

"The child was in the car, sweating profusely and crying," said South Salt Lake police officer Gary Keller. "With the assistance of our fire department, we entered the car and got the child out of the car."

The toddler was dehydrated and thirsty from being locked inside the 87-degree car with the windows rolled up, but he was in relatively good condition.

Police say it could have ended a lot worse. "Especially a 2-year-old; they can dehydrate very, very quickly. You just never want to leave your child in the car ever, ever," Keller said.

Farnham, who has no prior criminal history, missed the last 10 minutes of the movie, and there was a slight interruption for everyone else when officers turned up the lights and arrested him inside the theater.

Movie goer Katty Zlochevsky said, "About the last 10 minutes, all of a sudden the screen turned off and everyone freaked out."

"Two cops came up with what looked like two managers," she explained.

With the movie off and the lights on, the officers told the packed crowd they were looking for Farnham. Then they told the crowd why.

"In regards to the baby left in the car," Zlochevsky said. "Then everyone kind of gasped."

"We all looked to see where he was, and he stood up and went down the stairs. And then people kind of threw stuff and started booing, and no one knew what to do," she said.

Farnham was taken away, and the last 10 minutes of the movie continued.

He was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on charges of child abuse and child neglect.

Justin is now with his mother, who shares custody. She told Eyewitness News over the phone that he's doing well and that she's grateful it didn't end differently.

OK that is just fucked up. Some chick did that here in Phoenix, she worked at hooters and apparently "forgot" to drop her baby off at the babysitters before her shift. The car reached 130+ degrees in the summertime and the kid died. People like this need to be put in jail for life, just for being ignorant.

I don't believe it... he took them as his date to the oscars... maybe he just slammed the door in their face... the brits have a completely different view of assault... I say if there isnt at least one bruise, it didn't happen.
