Former ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ star denies endangering girlfriend or himself; no charges filed
The girlfriend of former "Malcolm in the Middle" star Frankie Muniz told police that Muniz struck her and held a gun to his own head during an argument last week.
No charges were filed, and police said there were no signs of injury. They also said she appeared to have been drinking when they responded to a call at the couple's home Friday.
A Phoenix Police Department report obtained by TMZ says Muniz's girlfriend, Elycia Turnbow, claimed the 25-year-old actor punched her in the back of the head and threw her into the wall of the couple's bedroom. She also said Muniz placed a gun to his own head, according to the police report.
Police said Muniz denied striking Turnbow, stating, "I love her too much. She is the woman I want to marry." He also denied placing the gun to his head, telling police, "I grabbed the case, but not the gun" and adding, "It isn't even loaded," according to the report.
Muniz did, however, say the situation was "extremely emotional." He said the two had argued about "prior relationships."
Muniz told police that he fell and hit his head during an argument Friday, and went to a hospital to get checked out but left without seeking treatment because he "was feeling better," the report said. He said he later awoke to Turnbow hitting him and demanding his computer. He said she fell while he was trying to get his computer back from her and he called police.
Turnbow said Muniz had gone to the hospital because she was worried he would hurt himself after he held the gun to his head and that she asked a friend to take him there, according to the report.
Police retrieved and confiscated a black, .380 semi-automatic gun from a closet and gave Muniz and Turnbow, both of whom refused to leave the residence, disorderly-conduct warnings, the police report said.
