I'm not sure why anyone would let their kids anywhere near Michael Madsen. The guy is self-destruction at its absolute best and his episodes and rantings and destruction have intensified over the past few years. According to TMZ, Madsen was arrested yesterday after police came to his house and saw marks on his minor child. Apparently they had got into a fight and Michael was not above actually hitting his kid. Michael was also drunk. Michael's attorney said that Michael was upset because he found his son smoking pot. Michael was probably more upset that his son did not share it with him or took it from Michael in the first place. Madsen was released from jail early this morning.
