Los Angeles: `Reservoir Dogs` star Michael Madsen is wanted by the police after failing to pay USD 570,000 in spousal support to his three ex-wives.

Police issued an arrest warrant for the actor`s arrest when he failed to show up for his court hearing over unpaid spouse and child support last week, reported TMZ.

Madsen, who lives in Malibu, California, now faces additional bail charges of up to USD 26,000.

Madsen`s failure to appear in court prompted the judge to rule him in contempt and consequently issue a warrant for his immediate arrest.

The 53-year-old has considerable monthly outgoings to ex-spouses after having been married three times.

His ex-wives include actress Georganne LaPiere, DeAnna Madsen and Jeannine Bisignano, with whom he has two sons.

The actor is a staple in Quentin Tarantino films including the `Kill Bill` franchise and `Sin City`.
