The actor, who was reportedly under the influence when officers arrived at his home, was taken to a nearby Sheriff's Department and held on $100,000 bond; he was released early Saturday morning.

"Everything's fine," Madsen told TMZ when he left. "Big misunderstanding."

Madsen's attorney further elaborated to TMZ: "[Michael] found his son smoking pot and they got in an argument when he tried to take it away. It's a family matter and Michael asks that his families privacy be respected."
