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, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.

A Friday report filed in Phoenix, Ariz. states that the Malcolm in the Middle star, now 25, got into a heated argument with girlfriend Elycia Turnbow over "prior relationships."

The report reads 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."

Cops later found a loaded gun at their home, which they have impounded. Both Muniz and Turnbow were charged with disorderly conduct. Cops warned the couple that they could face jail time if another violent incident occurs.

Of the incident, a rep for the couple tells 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," 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.

On Saturday, the day after the incident was filed, Muniz posted a cheerful note on his Facebook page. "Looking forward to the You Hang Up show at Martini Ranch in Scottsdale tonight," Muniz wrote, later posting photos with fans.
