If your last name contains the letters "w," "o," "o," and "d," you might just want to spend the rest of the week indoors.

Retired Rolling Stones bassist Ronnie Wood has become the second arbor-monikered star to land in hot water in recent days.

"We can confirm that a 62-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault in connection with a domestic incident," a spokesman for England's Surrey police said, sticking to the U.K. policy of not naming suspects.

Wood's spokesman confirmed it was the rocker, but told the Daily Mail, "We have no further statement to make at this time."

Wood, who entered rehab last year, was taken into police custody last night. He was released on bail and must return to face further questioning in January.

Details of the incident, including the identity of the alleged victim, or who called police, have not been released, though the British tabloids have spent the better part of the last few months breathlessly reporting on the often tempestuous, often police-intervening relationship between the sexagenarian and his 21-year-old Russian girlfriend, Ekaterina Ivanova.

His divorce from his wife of 24 years, Jo Wood, was finalized last month. Adultery was listed as the cause of the split.


Ronnie's fine and all, but if you want to know what's going on with that other Woods, we've got you covered.
