Sean Bean arrested

Sean Bean has been arrested for allegedly harassing his ex-wife.

The Lord of the Rings star arrived for a pre-arranged interview with police officers in London yesterday, according to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

The 53-year-old actor had his fingerprints and DNA taken and spoke to authorities about claims he had been sending abusive text messages to Georgina Sutcliffe.

Georgina, who stars in the West End production of The Mousetrap, is Sean's fourth wife. They tied the knot in February 2008 but divorced two years later.

"Georgina's a smashing girl and she just wants to get on with her life and move on after the divorce," a source told the publication.

"There's been no suggestion of there being violence involved or threats but police take harassment allegations seriously."

Sean is now starring in hit HBO series Game of Thrones. He has been bailed "until a later date."
