Hayden Christensen's Brother: Assault Charges!

Hayden Christensen‘s brother, producer Tove Christensen, was arrested early Wednesday morning (September 2) in Hollywood for felony assault with a deadly weapon.

Tove, 36, allegedly got into a fight with his girlfriend, pushed her to the ground and hopped in his car. When she reportedly reached inside to grab her purse, Tove drove away and dragged her down the street for 30 feet as she clung to the side of the car.

According to TMZ, LAPD tracked down Tove at his L.A. home, arrested him, and is currently holding him on $30,000 bail.

Tove (pictured here on the left) produced Hayden‘s flick Shattered Glass.

Please, before we start with comments of violence and domestic abuse, this is not a case of either. This is simply an argument that got a little out of hand and was probably instigated by the girlfriend anyway. I am a survivor of DV, I’ve been throttled, thrown out of a moving car, had my arm broken, my nose broken, my head gripped and smashed mutiple times into a radiator (leaving me with extensive facial bruising and a fractured cheekbone), I could go on. When something so minor as this little incident gets reported by the press it detracts from the real issue of DV. When women make such as fuss about little things that barely leave a mark and are often a one-off, again it seriously detracts from the real issue of DV. Please bear that in mind when making a comment because DV is a terrible thing and stories about minor arguments like this do damage to peoples perception of it. Women need to use more common sense in an argument, this girlfriend of his sounds as though she doesn’t have any by calling the police in the first place. It puts those of us who truly do suffer in a very difficult place.

Douche who lives off his brother

What a family, violent, cheaters on his spouses. The men in this family are horrible.

Celebs think that can do anything, the same should be done to him.

you forgot something @ 09/02/2009 at 9:52 am

You forgot to print the part of the story where the police “found visible marks on her arm” in the tmz article. Being dragged 30 feet by a car would entail more than some marks on an arm, surely! There is more to this story, if those are her only marks.

I think Hayden was cast as Darth Vader bc he looks dark and dangerous, probably fights it all the time in himself. Not nice.

I’m pretty sure they had an argument and all he wanted to do was to get out of the situation as fast as possible. Its not his fault she tried to get her bag out of the car when it was moving. I’m sure he stopped once he noticed she was dragging alongside.

what kind of a celeb is he, he is a nobody

They look like bad dudes, not nice men at all.

Poor Hayden, his brother who makes stupid things and is Hayden and his family who are the culprits.

@DV Survivor:
“…This is simply an argument that got a little out of hand and was probably instigated by the girlfriend anyway…”

You are def out of your mind.

What you mean by instigated by the girlfriend?!?!?!?!?!

There is no situation where anybody should use violence…if this was an argument then it should have stayed like that…he didnt have to drag her with the car like that…

We can’t allow any level of violence…

He’s not a celebrity. He runs a “production company” with Hayden, which has produced all of one film. Let’s hope this incident doesn’t hurt Hayden’s career prospects, but more importantly, let’s hope that this girl is OK and gets out of the relationship unscathed any further.

The brother looks gay anyways — probably he was jealous of the “girlfriend”

He’ll have enough boyfriends in jail so he should be happy :) da da dooo da :)

@DV….

I feel sad for you if for you this is just an argument that got out of hand…

and argument that gets out of hand is maybe yelling and walking away…

but shoving any woman and then knowing dragging his girlfriend 30 feet…I don’t care if she has scratched or not..(maybe she was wearing a leather jacket which protected her skin for doubters!) but this incident should get him doing jail time…and then we will see how he handles life inside a jail cell with his new roomies.

Ouch!
Let’s hope Hayden is not that crazy and do that to Rachel Bilson! If not i’d kill him!

How could anyone defend the indefensible criminal behavior.
People argue all the time, they don’t get violent. How could you blame the girl? What ever she did she did not endanger him, he is huge. All she wanted was her bag. He would not get arrested without evidence against him.

He better dump her before he hurts her bc she deserves all the blame, she media whoring her relationship with him and is using it to promote herself. He might just get mad. She deserves what is coming to her, she is trash.

I didn’t know that Hayden’s brother would do somthing like that.Hope that he can get out of it. And hope Hayden don’t get into in trouble with rachel like that.Ithink he has called it Quits anyway with her because he never seen to take picures with her anymore.And hope tove’s girlfriend is alright and if they can’t be together leave each other alone.

Question is, did she hit or push him first? Just pushing seems really odd as the start of a fight, more like the way to get someone back and off you so you can walk away.

I n F a m o u s l y C o o l @ 09/02/2009 at 10:38 am

hahahaha.. his brother is the one with the personality. hahahahaha

OK, as much as Rachel Bilson makes me want to throw up in my mouth, you people wishing her harm and death are seriously sick. First of all, the situation in question has little to do with her, other than the fact that Hayden’s brother is involved. Second of all, no girl deserves a beatdown at the hands of her boyfriend, regardless of who started what.

Dude….this is NOT domestic abuse. They had a fight, big deal. It clearly states that she was dragged because she clung to the car…she could’ve let go at any time. She probably didn’t let go because she wanted her purse.

It’s not like he beat her up.

:-O Seems as if this family is followed by scandals somehow. One man a cheater, another one treats his girlfriend badly, the third one simply ignores his. Weird enough.
That she is not hurt more is maybe luck, or she might have worn a jacket of a robust material, who knows?
And BTW, in this report it sounds to me like the witnesses called 911, not the woman herself. How should she have done, without her purse which probably held her cell? So maybe she should be taken more serious, especially by other women, instead of being called “stupid”?!
A real gentleman (meaning a respectable date) should have not just allowed her to take her purse out of the car but would have either given her a ride home himself IMO – or at least waited there until a called cab would have arrived. Even after an argument. It was 02:30 a.m. for Christ’s sake, a time a woman should not have to be out on the street alone.
What a bunch of “heroes”, I guess every woman can be very glad NOT to meet a Christensen in her life, they all seem to be strangers to good manners when it comes to treating women . I’m honestly shocked. Used to have a much higher opinion of this family once, but they managed to ruin their reputation step by step until nothing else is left except contempt, for all of them.

QUESTION. who are you guys referring to when you talk about one of the christensen men cheating?? Can someone explain
