LATEST: Christian Slater is trying to keep his wife Ryan Haddon out of jail after a reported fight between them turned nasty.

Haddon, a television producer, was arrested at Las Vegas, Nevada's HARD ROCK HOTEL AND CASINO on Monday (10NOV03) and charged with misdemeanour battery domestic violence after hurling a glass at her actor husband.

Slater has now told police that the incident was "a misunderstanding", insisting his wife meant to throw a glass of water at him and the glass slipped out of her hand.

Slater was taken to hospital with a gash on his head. He needed nine stitches.
