Actor Rick Schroder, best known for his role on the 1980s sitcom “Silver Spoons,” has been arrested for domestic violence, multiple outlets report.

Schroder, 49, was arrested Wednesday morning at around 1 a.m. on suspicion of domestic violence, marking his second arrest related to domestic violence in 30 days, ABC News reports.

After authorities responded to a call at his home in Topanga, California, they found signs that a physical altercation had taken place, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said, according to the network. Schroder was arrested after both he and an unnamed woman, who ultimately opted out of medical treatment, were interviewed.

The actor is currently still in police custody, CNN reported early Thursday, with ABC News listing his bail at $50,000.

It is currently unclear what specific charges Schroder has been hit with, as are the details of the dispute, but authorities have confirmed that Schroder was previously arrested on April 2 after an altercation with the same woman, according to ABC News. That altercation also took place at Schroder’s home, CNN reports.

Schroder has not yet commented publicly on his arrest and his representative did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.

A former child star, Schroder went on to appear on “NYPD Blue” as an adult, as well as a number of other TV series and movies. He and his wife of nearly 24 years, Andrea Schroder, began divorce proceedings in 2016, with Andrea Schroder pointing to irreconcilable differences in her filing. The couple shares four children.
