Jeremy Lindholm, Twin Peaks Actor, Arrested for Attempted Murder
Jeremy Lindholm, a veteran movie and television actor who most recently appeared on an episode of Twin Peaks, was arrested on Thursday on charges of attempted second degree murder.
He is accused of trying to kill his girlfriend.
According to a press release from the Spokane, Washington Police Department, authorities responded to a call from a local business around 5:40 p.m. on Wednesday evening regarding an alleged assault.
The person on the other end of the line said that an individual (later identified as Lindholm) was violently assaulting a woman with a baseball bat.
When cops arrived at the scene, Lindholm was spotted trying to run out the back of the establishment… with the bat still in his hand.
He “quickly gave up” when officers confronted him in the alley, per the release, and was then taken into custody.
Surveillance footage of the incident from inside the unnamed business captures what the official statement describes as an “extremely violent assault perpetrated by Lindholm.”
TMZ writes that the victim’s life was believed to have been in danger, based on statements from witnesses and based on the aforementioned footage.
The video apparently depicts Lindholm striking his girlfriend on the head and body with the bat, over a dozen times.
He’s also seen choking her and allegedly saying he wants to kill her.
“There was information suggesting the intent of [Lindholm] was to kill the victim,” according to the release.
Officers proceeded to book the 41-year old actor into Spokane County Jail on multiple charges:
Attempted murder second degree, second degree assault and several others, including assault of the victim’s friend.
He is being held on $100,000 bond.
The victim received serious, yet non life-threatening injuries, and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.
Lindholm appeared in just one scene of the Twin Peaks revival on Showtime this summer. His other credits include Memoir of a Cannibal, Game of Cards and The Absent.
“MAM represents Jeremy Lindholm. We have worked with him on bookings for television, film, and commercial projects. We are stunned at the news of his arrest,” Lindholm’s talent agent, Anne Lillian Mitchell, said in a statement to People Magazine.
