Anthony Michael Hall was booked on charges of disturbing the peace after getting involved in a dispute with a neighbor at his condo building Monday night.
The neighbor told Los Angeles Police Department officers that Hall was tearing up plants in the building's common area and making noise. When the neighbor came out of his unit to investigate and asked what was going on, the actor allegedly responded with an obscenity and threatened to "beat him to a pulp," the Los Angeles Times reports.
Shortly thereafter, Hall knocked on the neighbor's door and told the man to come outside and fight, but the neighbor closed the door and called police, according to the Times. After
being booked on a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace on Tuesday, Hall
was released from custody.
Hall -- who was part of the Brat Pack, a group of actors who appeared in teen-oriented films in the 1980s -- is best known for starring in Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and National Lampoon's Vacation.
