TRUSSVILLE, Ala. (WIAT) – Trussville police say actor turned defendant Luke Bigham was arrested again Tuesday night for a domestic violence incident. Bigham, who starred in the movie “Talladega Nights,” is charged with third-degree domestic violence after he allegedly attacked his mother.
Police say the incident happened at his mother’s home on Mobile Avenue around 8 p.m. Bigham and his mother were arguing when he pushed her down a flight of stairs. He fled the scene and his mother called police.
When Bigham returned to the scene, he was arrested. He’s being held in the Trussville City Jail on $1,000 bond.
Bigham was arrested in early June and charged with reckless driving stemming from a five-car accident in Trussville.
Trussville Police Chief Don Sivley told WIAT 42 News in June investigators believe Bigham was driving more than 80 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone just moments before the crash.
Sivley said there was no indication of drugs or alcohol playing a factor in the accident.
