Jean-Claude Van Damme’s youngest son has been arrested for allegedly ‘holding his roommate at knife point’.
21-year-old Nicholas Van Varenberg, was arrested in Tempe, Arizona, on Sunday after police were called to his apartment block.
According to reports, police were called to the building in response to calls about Van Varenberg punching his elevator.
According to TMZ, on arrival, officers found a trail of blood leading to the flat and after speaking to both Nicholas and his room mate, they discovered Van Varenberg had injuries to his hand.
It’s believed the police then left the scene, but 20 minutes later, the unnamed roommate ran downstairs claiming he’d escaped his apartment, where Van Varenberg was holding him at knifepoint.
It’ alleged the flatmate told officers Nicholas was ‘annoyed at him for opening the door to the police’.
After searching the apartment, officers discovered both a knife and some marijuana.
Van Varenberg was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful imprisonment, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
