Former child star, Ricky Schroder was arrested early on Wednesday morning. Police had received a call of domestic violence at 12:43 a.m. PST.

"When deputies arrived, they made contact with the suspect and the victim. They also identified evidence of a physical altercation," Navarro said.

She said this is the second time police have paid Schroder a visit. She also went on to reveal details surrounding the case.

"The female adult victim declined medical treatment," she said before adding that Schroder was "arrested for domestic violence...[and] booked at Malibu Loft Hills Sheriff's Station."

On April 2, at approximately 12:26 a.m., "a similar incident occurred between suspect Schroder and the victim at the same residence." Shroder split from his wife Andrea Bernard in 2016 just before their 24th wedding anniversary.

Schroder is best known for playing Ricky Stratton on the sitcom "Silver Spoons." According to jail records, he was booked at the Malibu/Lost Hills station.

His bail was set at $50,000.  Schroder was spotted wearing a hoodie and leaving the Lost Hills Sheriff station around 9:15 a.m. and getting into the car.

According to the booking sheet, the actor had gone through the same procedure for the previous arrest. He was released on $50,000 bond later the same day last time as well.

It is unclear who Schroder is currently dating.  He has four children - Holden, Luke, Cambrie, and Faith- with his ex-wife.


He is not the first star to be arrested for domestic violence. Last year, TMZ reported that "America's Got Talent" finalist Michael Ketterer was also taken into custody for domestic violence.
