Police say Michael Nouri was booked on suspicion of battery on Thursday.

Michael Nouri may have a mess of his own to mop up. The "NCIS" and "Damages"  star was arrested Thursday on suspicion of domestic violence after police were called to a residence and found him and a woman who claimed she had been roughed up by the 66-year-old actor. 

According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, the 911 call came at around 5:30 p.m. and, upon arrival, officers determined a domestic violence incident had occurred.

Nouri was booked on suspicion of battery against a person in a dating relationship, false imprisonment and obstruct use of a wireless device, which, according to police, means he allegedly tried to prevent the woman from using the phone to call for help. 

He was released from custody after posting $50,000 bail. A court date has been set for Nov. 30.
