A Twin Peaks actor has been charged with attempted second-degree murder.

Jeremy Lindholm – who appeared in episode six of the new season, which is currently still airing – was apprehended after allegedly beating his girlfriend with a baseball bat.

Police in Spokane, Washington responded to a call made from a local business on Wednesday evening.

A statement from Spokane Police read: "The suspect, 41-year-old Jeremy Lindholm, was fleeing out the back of the business when Officers arrived on scene. Lindholm still had the baseball bat in hand as he fled, but quickly gave up when confronted by Officers in the alley. He was then taken into custody.

"Officers interviewed the victim and witnesses at the location. Officers learned that this incident was domestic violence-related. There was also surveillance video of the incident from inside the business, which showed an extremely violent assault perpetrated by Lindholm.

"After watching the video and taking statements into account, Officers felt that the victim's life was in danger, and there was information suggesting the intent of the suspect was to kill the victim."

In addition to attempted second-degree murder, Lindholm received "several other charges" including second-degree assault and assaulting the alleged victim's friend.

Authorities also confirmed that the alleged victim's injuries were "non-life-threatening".

Since Lindholm's arrest, the actor's agent has released a statement responding to the events.

"We are stunned at the news of his arrest," Anne Lillian Mitchell told People. "Our interaction with him has always been consistently professional.

"We will monitor the trial. Our thoughts are with all involved and their families."

Lindholm's bail has been set at $100,000 (£77,000), reports TMZ.
