'Free Willy' Star Arrested for Domestic Violence

Former child actor Jason James Richter, who starred as "Jesse" in the 1993 movie Free Willy, was recently freed himself after spending two nights in jail.

The 38-year-old Richter was arrested and charged with domestic violence. Police say he got into an argument with his girlfriend who later walked into the police station and filed a report accusing him of physically attacking her. Richter was jailed on Monday and released on Wednesday on $20,000 bail. 

Police say they didn't see any noticeable marks on his girlfriend.

There have actually been three Free Willy movies and he appeared in all of them. He's been in only a few things since then.
