One week after former child star Frankie Muniz got into an intense fight with his girlfriend -- in which he allegedly held a loaded gun to his head and later punched her -- a 911 call placed by the star reveals more details about their altercation.

In a 911 audio recording obtained by TMZ.com, Muniz, 25, tells the female dispatcher that girlfriend Elycia Turnbow, 33, is "going crazy" and "trashing my house."

"She's hitting me in the face and I don't know what to do," he says. "I'm about to lose control."

Later, Muniz pleads with the operator to cancel the call and the police officers en route to their Phoeniz, Ariz., home.

"I don't want to make a big deal because I am a celebrity," Muniz tells the operator. "I don't want there to be a big deal. I don't want any charges -- I just want her to stop throwing stuff!"

A police report filed after the February 11 incident and obtained by TMZ states that Muniz "grabbed a gun and held it to his head, possibly with the intent of committing suicide." After a short visit to the hospital, Muniz returned home, and the couple began arguing again -- in which, the police file says, Muniz "punched" Turnbow and "threw her into a wall."

Both Muniz and Turnbow were charged with disorderly conduct.

Of the incident, a rep for the couple told UsMagazine.com in a statement: "Frankie and Elycia had an argument a few days ago. The police were called to the residence. A gun played no part in the argument and was voluntarily given to the police for safekeeping. There were no bruises and neither left the residence. He was not suicidal. She was not assaulted. They have been together since the incident; are still together and are moving forward with their lives and with their relationship."

Once called "one of Hollywood's most bankable teens," Malcolm in the Middle's Muniz put his acting career on hold in 2008 to become a race car driver; he's also a drummer in the band You Hang Up. He did voiceover work in the 2010 animated film The Legend of Secret Pass.
