Star of soap operas arrested for assault

American actor Cody Longo, known for his iconic soap opera Days of Our Lives, was arrested by Clarkville, Tennessee, on charges of assaulting his wife.

He was detained after he got drunk and started beating his wife Stephanie. The police report said Longo allegedly came home drunk and accused Stephanie of turning the argument into violence.

The actor told the authorities that his wife’s accusations were not true. Longo also denied the TMZ accusations and told the newspaper that the situation is a private matter. However, the 32-year-old spent the night in prison and was released on bail of $2,500.

In 2013, Longo had already been arrested in Los Angeles for drunk driving, and then under a plea bargain he committed to attend AA.
