Mira SorvinoMira Sorvino's husband has been arrested on a charge of public intoxication following reports of an argument with the actress in a San Diego, California, hotel this weekend.
Police were called to the Hyatt Regency Islandia, where the couple was staying, in the early hours of Sunday after guests complained about a noisy disturbance.
According to, Sorvino and her partner Christopher Backus had been embroiled in a loud war of words over "poor time management skills" before an allegedly drunk Backus began pacing around the hotel with a bat, yelling at guests and hotel security.
He was busted on a misdemeanor count of being drunk in public and was remanded in custody at San Diego Central Jail shortly after midnight.
