D.J. Qualls had a run-in with Vancouver police this weekend after an alleged miscommunication with an officer led to a bloody confrontation.

Find out who Qualls is playing on Supernatural

Qualls, who is in Canada to guest-star on The CW's Supernatural, was leaving a café when he saw a man punch a woman. The Road Tripstar claimed, via his Twitter page, that he approached an officer to report the incident, who then threatened to arrest him.

"He said if I didn't get out of there, he's [sic] arrest me," Qualls tweeted. "I asked why and he tackled me, busted my face and handcuffed me... I was handcuffed and bleeding while the cop kept saying to me, 'you think you're f---ing better than me?'"
