After freeing Willy, child actor Jason James Richter didn’t stay out of trouble.
Richter, who portrayed Jesse in “Free Willy” and “Free Willy 2,” was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence on Monday in the San Fernando Valley, TMZ reported. He spent two nights in jail before he was released Wednesday on $20,000 bail.
Richter reportedly got into a fight with his girlfriend after he allegedly asked her if she was having an affair with a coworker. The girlfriend reportedly told police she ran to the bedroom and locked the door, but Richter ended up breaking down the door down to get inside the room. She claimed he then pulled her into the living room.
She later showed up to the police station and filed a report, claiming domestic violence. Richter also has been charged with one count of vandalism for breaking the door and another count of battery on a significant other with no physical injury.
