The 35-year old Australian stage and screen actor, Matthew Newton, was arrested on Friday evening on charges of resisting police and trespassing on property after a warning.
A Miami-Dade County jail official said that the actor was arrested for the mentioned claims yet he was also release from the Miami jail after a weekend arrest. The Australian actor was released on Saturday evening on a $2,000 bond.
For other people, this isn’t new anymore because Newtown had already a couple of legal troubles before and this isn’t his first time to be arrested and spend an overnight stay on jail. For those who can still remember and for those who have heard the news, the Australian actor was also sent with a restraining order from the actress Rachael Taylor in 2012. The Tranformers actress took out a restraining order against then-boyfriend Newton, accusing him of violently assaulting her while the couple were in Rome. After that incident, Matthew Newton was then dropped as host of a new Australian talent series.
If you think you heard it all, then there’s more. On 2007, Newton was also pleaded guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Brooke Satchwell during a breakup argument that they had. Furthermore, earlier that year Newton spent 28 days in a Melbourne rehab clinic that specializes in drug and alcohol issues.
These actors and actresses really can’t help but to get themselves in trouble. They haven’t realized that drug and alcohol abuse will do them no good, not just on their career, but on their health as well.
