Charges of domestic violence can be allotted to anyone, including actors and actresses. Recently, Luke Bigham, who starred in “Talladega Nights,” was charged with domestic violence harassment for an argument between him and his mother. He allegedly shoved his mother into the stairs. His mother, who admitted she was in pain when the police arrived, refused medical attention.
Bigham apparently has also been in other trouble lately. In June, he was involved in an accident where he was excessively exceeding the speed limit. Two passengers, as well as Bigham, suffered injuries in the accident. He turned himself into jail and was released later after a $1,000 bond was paid.
Bigham, who is 20 years old, is now facing these new domestic violence charges against his mother. Court is scheduled for July 11, and another $1,000 bond has been set.
While Bigham lives in Alabama, Florida has its own share of domestic violence offenders. Domestic violence usually has two sides to the story. Defending a domestic battery charge requires a good defense. The details of the incident resulting in the domestic violence charge must be reviewed to see if self-defense was used, if the assault might have been an accident or if there may be another reason why things may not have been as they appeared to be.
Sometimes, there are witnesses who can testify on the accused person’s behalf. If someone has an actual problem with anger management or acts of violence, being willing to help themselves by attending anger management classes, therapy or counseling may go along way in helping their case in front of a judge.
