Former child star Luke Bigham has been arrested and charged with domestic violence following a fight with his mother.

The Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby actor was taken into custody by police in Trussville, Alabama on Tuesday night (08Jul14) after allegedly pushing his mum down a flight of stairs.

The 20 year old is being held in Trussville City Jail on $1,000 (£588) bond.

The arrest marks Bigham's second in recent weeks - he is also facing a count of reckless driving relating to a five-car pile up in Trussville on 4 June (14), when he was allegedly caught speeding before smashing into another vehicle. He is due to appear in court to answer to that charge later on Wednesday (09Jul14).

Bigham rose to fame in 2006 when he played a 10-year-old version of Will Ferrell's title character in Taladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

He has also appeared in two episodes of U.S. comedy series Eastbound and Down.
