Christian Bale CBale0608.jpg LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - British prosecutors say that actor Christian Bale will not face charges regarding an alleged assault on his mother and sister at the Dorchester Hotel in London on July 21.

According to The Associated Press, London's Crown Prosecution Service says there is insufficient evidence for a "realistic prospect of conviction" and they have told the police not to take any further action against the Batman star.

Bale was arrested on July 22 for reportedly assaulting his 61-year-old mother Jenny, after she made insulting remarks about his wife, Sandra 'Sibi' Blazic. According to a source for The Daily Mail, the actor reportedly "flew off the handle" at London's Dorchester hotel, but that "he didn’t lay a finger on anyone. He just got very loud." The source added that Bale's attitude "is that this was his mother's fault because she became very provocative in an argument they were having. Things got out of control and he now says he wishes he just left the room."
