 “Trailer Park Boys” star Michael Smith was arrested on Friday morning on suspicion of choking his 21-year-old girlfriend.

The 43-year-old Canadian actor, who plays the character Bubbles in the Netflix series, was charged with domestic battery and released on $20,000 bail about 5 a.m., reports People.

Witnesses told TMZ that Smith was arguing with a woman at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood when they heard her screaming, "You're choking me." They alleged they saw the actor pinning the woman against a wall.

Smith allegedly fled the scene, but returned to find officers waiting for him. He was charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor.

The actor was a breakout star on "Trailer Park Boys," a Canadian TV series that was brought back to life by Netflix in 2014. His character Bubbles is goofy with coke bottle glasses and he lives in a shed with his cats.
