Los Angeles: `Kill Bill` star Michael Madsen was arrested over allegations of felony child endangerment.
The 54-year-old actor was allegedly embroiled in an altercation with his young son in Malibu, California and taken into custody after cops were called to his home, reported TMZ.
Madsen was then booked for child endangerment and held on USD 100,000 bail.
According to sources, the child did not need medical attention.
Madsen was released early Saturday morning and was in decent spirits on his way out, calling the whole incident a "big misunderstanding".
His lawyer Perry Wander claimed the fall out came after the star caught his son smoking marijuana.
"(Michael) found his son smoking pot and they got in an argument when he tried to take it away. It`s a family matter and Michael asks that his family`s privacy be respected," the lawyer said.
Madsen has three sons with his third wife Deanna Morgan, and two boys from his previous relationship with Jeannine Bisignano.
