Jean-Claude Van Damme's son arrested for assault

The youngest son of Hollywood action film star Jean-Claude Van Damme, has just been busted for allegedly holding his roommate at knifepoint.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Nicholas Van Varenberg, bearing the real last name of Van Damme, was reportedly arrested on Sunday in Tempe, Ariz., for pulling a knife on his roommate.

Tempe police were called to an apartment complex near Veterans Way and College Avenue after receiving reports of a disturbance in an elevator, police said. A trail of blood led to his apartment, where police discovered he had injured his hand.

Cops left the apartment but 20 minutes later the roommate dashed downstairs and said he'd escaped the flat where Mr Van Varenberg was holding him at knife point.

After searching the apartment, the officers uncovered a knife and marijuana.

Van Varenberg is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful imprisonment, pot possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He's the son of Van Damme and model Darcy LaPier.

Earlier this year, Nicholas appeared alongside his dad in the film Kickboxer 2: Retaliation. Van Damme also has adult children Kristopher and Bianca with Gladys Portugues, who he was first married to from 1987 to 1992.
