Actor Jeremy Lindholm, most recently seen as Mickey in Twin Peaks was arrested Wednesday night on attempted second degree murder charges after beating a woman with a baseball bat. He attempted o flee the police “by escaping out the business’s back door when officers arrived”, according to a press release from the Spokane Police Department.
The actor still had the baseball bat in hand when he was confronted by officers in an alley, and quickly surrendered. Police said that after interviewing witnesses and the victim, they concluded the “extremely violent assault” was one of domestic violence. TMZ reports that the victim was Lindholm’s girlfriend.
Surveillance video from inside the business showed the extent of the attack, and led cops to believe that the victim’s life was in danger, and that Lindholm was trying to kill her. She was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to the release. Lindholm, meanwhile, was booked into the Spokane County Jail on attempted second degree murder and second degree assault, among other charges. He is being held on $100,000 bond.
Twin Peaks was the biggest role Lindholm had palyed to date with previous roles in Memoir of a Cannibal, Tiki, The Absent and Game of Cards.
