    Jason London Arrest: Actor's Injuries "Consistent With Brutal Attack," Says Rep

    Jason London Mug shot Scottsdale Police

    Jason London's rep says that injuries the actor suffered at an Arizona bar before being arrested on Sunday night are consistent with a "brutal attack," and "clearly demonstrate skilled and intentionally inflicted injury and harm."

    The Dazed and Confused star is accused of slugging a fellow patron at the Martini Grill in Scottsdale, after which, according to what police wrote in his arrest report, he acted belligerently toward authorities at the scene and then defecated in the squad car on the way to the police station.

    An all-around crappy night for everyone.

    Here's what we know about Jason London's arrest so far

    "The details of the events leading up to the incident are still being worked out with the help of many eyewitness testimonies, people who were there with Jason for the duration of the evening and with the recollection Jason does have," London's rep said Wednesday in a statement obtained by E! News.

    "We will undoubtedly get to the bottom of the specifics. Neither Jason nor any of the witnesses we have spoken to have any recollection of anything even feeling like it was going south."

    After being booked for alleged assault and disorderly conduct and released on his own recognizance, London took to Twitter to defend himself in light of the incredibly unflattering police report, in which an officer wrote that London was dropping F-bombs of both varieties and then "defecate[d] in his pants" while in the car en route to the police station.

    "I got jumped by three 250 pound bouncers," London tweeted. "They knocked me out and beat me for several minutes...I would never say or do the crap they are reporting. Have faith in me. The truth will come out and you will see. Some guy thought I was hitting on his girl and had me jumped."

    His rep's statement continued: "Everyone was in good spirits and having a good time and there have been no reports of Jason being inappropriate or aggressive in any way. That being said, that is far from the point. Bars are institutions where there are drunk people who are sometimes inappropriate and even sometimes violent.

    "It is the bouncers' job to remove the problem and if it is necessary to use force in order to secure the safety of the establishment and patrons they are entitled to do so. It is not acceptable to retaliate with brutality once that has been accomplished...Jason's injuries are consistent with a brutal attack with deliberately and expertly aimed landed shots to the head which, according to eyewitnesses, continued even after he was unconscious."
