Mark Hiedrich, 55, of Los Angeles, was taken into custody around 4:40 p.m. Tuesday on suspicion of misdemeanor resisting arrest and misdemeanor battery on a peace officer, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.
Heidrich, also known as Mark Boone Junior, was driving in Montrose when an officer stopped him at Ramsdell and Honolulu avenues for talking on his cell phone and not wearing a seatbelt, Lorenz said.
An argument ensued and as the officer tried to handcuff the actor, a struggle broke out, causing the officer to fall to the ground, Lorenz said.
Hiedrich also allegedly tried to strike the officer in the face, but missed.
The actor was apparently upset because he was in a rush to get somewhere.
The officer was not injured.
Hiedrich was eventually taken into custody. He was later released after posting a $20,000 bond, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
