David Henrie, one of the stars of the Disney Channel hit show "Wizards of Waverly Place," was cited on April 15th for allegedly trying to start a fight at a popular Los Angeles shopping center.
Henrie, 20, and his 16-year-old brother Lorenzo were detained at Universal CityWalk on the night of April 15th. They were both cited for challenging a person to a fight (similar to disturbing the peace) and released April 16th to their father.
David Henrie’s rep has released a statement:
“Contrary to the reports that have circulated in the media, neither David Henrie nor his 16-year-old brother Lorenzo were trying to start a fight last night at Universal City Walk,”
“In fact, they took appropriate measures to avoid an altercation. Unfortunately, private security guards released the instigators, and became extremely aggressive with Lorenzo.”
“When David attempted to protect his younger brother, the security guards became equally aggressive with him. Numerous witnesses at the scene confirmed that David and Lorenzo were simply trying to protect themselves from an unjustified use of force.”
