Frankie Muniz of 'Malcolm in the Middle' and girlfriend still together after alleged assault
Former "Malcolm in the Middle" star Frankie Muniz has resolved things with his publicist girlfriend Elycia Turnbow, after allegedly assaulting her on February 11 in their Phoenix, Arizona home.
"As far as they are concerned, their issues are resolved," Muniz's representative Lauren Tobin told People magazine. "Neither one is interested in finger-pointing at the other. It was a situation that escalated beyond a point that it needed to be. If anything, they will look back at this as a learning opportunity."
Tobin also told People on Friday that Muniz is not suicidal and voluntarily handed over the gun to authorities and no charges were made.
The entertainment website TMZ obtained a recording of Muniz's 911 call where Muniz told the dispatcher, "I don't want to make a big deal because I am a celebrity." The former actor also said on the call that his girlfriend was "trashing the house" and hitting him in the face.
The February 11 police report states that the 25-year-old actor and musician argued with his girlfriend about "prior relationships," according to Us Weekly. The report also states that Muniz "grabbed a gun and held it to his head, possibly with the intent of committing suicide."
The former child star took a hiatus from the acting world to become a race car driver, though he made a brief return with voice work in the 2010 animated feature "The Legend of Secret Pass." He now lives in Arizona and performs with the band You Hang Up where he plays drums.
