Actor Sizemore Arrested for Intimidation
Monday May 12 2:10 PM ET

Actor Tom Sizemore, who was charged in March with hitting and threatening a woman, was arrested for investigation of intimidating a witness.

Sizemore, who pleaded innocent to the March charges, was arrested after allegedly threatening the witness last week, police Officer Adriana Sanchez said.

The 41-year-old actor was released Thursday after posting a $100,000 bond.

An emergency protection order also was issued Thursday, barring Sizemore from coming within 100 yards of the witness or contacting her, Frank Mateljan of the city attorney's office said Friday.

Police and city prosecutors wouldn't reveal the witness' name, but the television program Celebrity Justice reported that she's former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, Sizemore's ex-fiancee.

Sizemore allegedly left messages on Fleiss' answering machine threatening to knock out her teeth, kill her and harm members of her family, Celebrity Justice reported.

His attorney, Robert Barta, didn't immediately return a telephone call seeking comment. His publicist, Michelle Bega, said in a statement that he and Fleiss "have had a turbulent and unhealthy relationship."

At the time of his Thursday arrest, Sizemore was free on $2,500 bail, after pleading innocent to five misdemeanor charges domestic violence, battery, violating a restraining order, making criminal threats and dissuading a witness.

A woman told police on Dec. 7, 2002, that the actor had punched her in the face and threatened her. Officers went to an address the woman provided and took Sizemore into custody.

The actor has appeared in films including "Natural Born Killers," "Saving Private Ryan" and "Black Hawk Down."
