Michael Nouri Arrested For Domestic Violence

Yesterday at 6pm, police were called to a home in Beverly Hills and found Michael Nouri and his girlfriend involved in a physical fight. When police looked at Nouri's girlfriend they saw that she had been hurt and arrested Nouri and charged him with felony domestic violence. Nouri is most known for his role in Flashdance and lately has been in NCIS and Damages. Oh, he was also in Army Wives. Bail was set at $50K and he was released early this morning.

He looks creepy to me.

FSP said...

Looks like a turd to me.

Cathy said...

Until I got to the last two sentences, I was thinking he must be one of those real housewives' husbands/exes or something, since i had no idea who he was.

figgy said...

Darn it FSP beat me to the turd.

SusanB said...

Geez - I always liked him, especially when he was younger. He's excellent on NCIS. He's been in tons of movies and if memory serves, some soap operas. Sorry to hear he's a jerk.

Amber said...

For some reason I always think he's Gabriel Byrne, but then I look at Gabriel Byrne and it's definitely not him. Gabriel Byrne is one of my older man crushes. Michael Nouri is not. Prick.

Any man who hits a woman is less than a man.

Stacey Charter said...

Damn it! I love him in NCIS as Ziva's dad, Director David - Tho he hasn't been on this season he usually makes a few appearances every year. Anxious to hear this whole story

discoflux said...

You are KILLING me, FSP!!

Lurky Loo said...

He was also famous for being Jennifer Beal's boyfriend in Fhashdance. Glad he was caught but honestly in the sea of narcissism that is Hollywood, it's just another creep being unmasked so we can see what he really is.

Amber......Gabriel Byrne! *swoon*

lc said...

Good! But you know he'll get out of it. Update on my sister's abuser...he got 48 months! Almost the max of 5 years for his 2nd degree assault on her.

The Black Cat said...

Wow, I only know him from Damages.

auntliddy said...

Ic, hope the abuser has not one peaceful moment in jail. Good wishes for sister. Years ago, nouri was dating roma downy, also on flakey side, while he was still married, but it was okay with him and wife, as she had MS. So yes, he has the distinct odor of turd emanating from him. And pretzel logic as well.

I remember him as Ziva's dad. Hope he gets jail time. Glad NCIS hasn't had him on this season. Hope nobody else hires him either!

Borg Queen said...

I always knew he was shady. When he was married, I believe his wife was very sick. My memory is vague but I seem to recall she was wheelchair bound. He was dating Roma Downey and he claimed he had his wife's blessing to go out and have sex with other women. Sex - yes with other women but he launched a longtime relationship with Downey. I always wondered why Downey never got bad press for it.

Basil said...

Not to make light of domestic violence, but until I hear the whole story I am not making judgements on this guy. Cops take this sort of thing very seriously, but I suspect alot of men have been arrested for this sort of thing when they have been trying to defend themselves against the woman who is being physical.

smash said...

Clearly. He is disturbed. :)

ABlake said...

I'm with you Basil. A good friend of mine was arrested (and jailed for 2 days) because his gf suspected him of cheating, called the cops and said he 'twisted her thumb while grabbing the phone out of her hand because she was calling 911' (interfering with a 911 call is a pretty serious charge)
Turns out she dialed 911 and hung up, then used her daughter's cell to call. Him? He was asleep the whole time.
When the cops arrived they woke him up. No kidding. Lots of lawyer fees later he was finally exonerated. So I agree, there very well may be more to this story.

Topper Madison said...

Noooooo! I had such a crush on him when I was a kid and he was Steve on Search for Tomorrow!

AKM said...

Yep, I remember the Roma Downey situation, too. That's what I think of when I heard about him these days.

HolidayinCambodia said...

He also had sort of a meta part in an '80's-'90's sitcom starring Susan Dey (replaced by Annie Potts) and Jay something or another where he played Dey's ex-husband who was a soap opera actor. There also were two redheads (a waitress and a sportswriter), Mac from Night Court, and a garbage collector character actor who just got a movie starring or lead TV role.

HolidayinCambodia said...

"Love and War." Susan Dey, Jay Thomas, Joanna Gleason, Suzie Plakson, Joel Murray, Michael Nouri, Charles Robinson.

Dey starred the first year, then Annie Potts replaced her for the next two years.

Artyeye said...

Summers Dad from The OC.

I know I'm not the only one that watched that...

Cee Kay said...

Michael Nouri did NOT play Steve! That was Frank Runyeon. Nouri did play Palmer's...nephew? maybe? Caleb on AMC a couple years ago, though.

Cee Kay said...

And I'm withholding judgment too. Enty said that Nouri and the girlfriend were involved in a physical fight. So if both of them were pushing each other around, why dump on just him?

g.strathmore said...

I hadn't heard that Roma Downey thing, that is so gross. Isn't Roma all into being religious?

The only thing I've seen him in is as a plastic surgeon in a Catherine Keener movie, and yes he was kind of sleazy in it.

Henriette said...

I ALWAYS get this guy mixed up with Chris Sarandon! They look so much a like to me, but Chris works a hell of a lot more than this guy.

All I remember about Nouri is he broke the Touched By an Angel's chick's heart. The one from Ireland. Can't recall her name.

Lelaina Pierce said...

@Artyeye - That is the only thing I know him from. The O.C. was the shit. ;)

Silly Girl said...

LOVE him...Hate this though!! He's one of my secret crushes!

NC said...
