Tom Sizemore is back behind bars! Just two weeks after he drove over a stuntman on the set of his show, ‘Shooter,’ the ‘Saving Private Ryan’ actor was arrested for allegedly beating up his girlfriend during a heated argument.
Things are – once again – not looking good for Tom Sizemore, 54. The latest round of problems for the troubled actor includes the Los Angeles Police Department and new allegations of domestic abuse.
The LAPD reportedly received multiple 911 calls from a screaming woman on the morning of July 18, per TMZ. That lady reportedly turned out to be Tom’s girlfriend, and she claims he attacked her when a heated argument turned physical. Tom allegedly struck her repeatedly, hitting her in the head and the face.
When the authorities arrived, the woman reportedly refused medical attention, sources tell TMZ. Tom was reportedly booked for domestic violence and placed within police custody. Sadly, this isn’t the only case of alleged domestic abuse in Tom’s history. He served seven months in jail in 2003 for beating up his then-girlfriend, the notorious “Hollywood Madam,” Heidi Fleiss, 50.
This alleged domestic abuse comes just two weeks after Tom was involved in an on-set accident involving a stunt worker and a SUV. While filming a sniper scene for Shooter, Tom was supposed to run into an awaiting Cadillac SUV and just sit in the driver’s seat until the director shouted, “Cut!” For some unknown reason, Tom decided to throw the car into reverse, slam on the gas and back over a stuntman.
Tom ended up pinning the man to the ground. Eyewitnesses reportedly raced over to the car to dramatically lift it off of the injured man. The recuse ultimately required equipment to raise the car and free the man (who was reportedly in “really bad” shape afterwards.) It’s not known if Tom knew that someone was behind him. It’s also unlikely that the men are going to pull a similar dramatic rescue to bust Tom out of jail.
