T.J. Miller, star of Silicon Valley and the just-opened Office Christmas Party, was arrested early Friday.
T.J. Miller Arrested for Battery
The arrest came after an Uber car-service driver accused him of battery, Los Angeles police say.
Officer Drake Madison says the arrest occurred around 1 a.m. Friday. The accusing driver wanted Miller booked under a citizen’s arrest.
Allegedly, the driver and Miller got in argument about Donald Trump. Then, the confrontation escalated and the driver called the police.
The police released Miller without having to post bail.
The actor’s arrest happened two days before he will host the Critics’ Choice Awards in Santa Monica.
Joey Berlin, president of the organization that gives out the Critics’ Choice Awards, says Miller will remain the host for Sunday’s show.
“We look forward to seeing what he’s going to do on Sunday,” Berlin said.
Miller’s latest movie, Office Christmas Party premiered yesterday.
