Trailer Park Boys' Mike Smith Arrested for Alleged Domestic Battery

Comedian claims it was just an argument

Megan Vick

Mike Smith who plays Bubbles on the cult comedy Trailer Park Boys, was arrested at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles early Friday morning on suspicion of domestic battery.

The Associated Press reports that Smith was released hours after the arrest on $20,000 bail. TMZ reported that Smith got into a heated argument with his friend Georgia Ling and pinned her against the bathroom wall of the hotel. However, Ling released her a statement saying that the events have been blown out of proportion.

"Mike and I did indeed have a heavy argument but it saddens me the way things are being reported and the way it was handled by the police. At no point did I feel I was in danger, otherwise I would've called the police myself, which I did not. The police were called by others not present in the room who mistakenly perceived the argument to be something other than what it was. When the officers arrived I tried to assure them there was no real issue, but they proceeded to arrest Mike," she said.

Smith also released a statement denying any assault. "Georgia is a friend of mine and we had a loud and heated dispute. That is all. At no time did I assault her. I am not guilty of the misdemeanor charged against me."

Trailer Park Boys originated on Toronto's Showcase channel and aired from 2001-07. Netflix resurrected the series in 2014.
