“It was clear that whoever was in the household was extremely angry and violent,” the report said.
The report said the responding deputy made contact with London in the front yard and that he was “very cooperative once outside the residence.”
The complainant had previously left the home prior to the deputy’s arrival “out of fear for her safety.” London told deputies he was on the phone with his wife trying to get her to return. He told the deputies his wife “had a bi-polar moment and started verbally fighting with him.” He told the deputy there was not a physical altercation.
The deputy said he searched the home and there were no signs of an altercation.
Juliet told the deputy Jeremy had attempted to leave the home with their 3-year-old child. As she reached for the door handle, Jeremy floored the car in reverse to prevent her from opening the door, causing her to fall, she told the deputy. She told the deputy she was injured, with possible swelling to her left him and left hand, as well as scratches to her right hand and a scraped and swollen left cheek.
She said Jeremy had left the home with their child but she called him back. Upon his return, she said she “jumped in the vehicle with their child still in the back seat and left” until deputies arrived.
According to the report, Jeremy heard the conversation and said he had no idea she fell and “would never hurt his wife.” Juliet said she did not need medical attention.
While being booked, the deputy said, Jeremy stated he “did not mean to hurt his wife and that he even checked on her after he saw her fall.”
The responding deputy said in the report that he had previously been called to the home over a similar issue.
London was released on a $2,500 bond at 7:40 p.m. Friday.
Jeremy London’s other acting credits include TV shows “7th Heaven” and “Party of Five.”
