'Scorpion' Star Elyes Gabel Allegedly Choked Girlfriend, Charged With Assault

Elyes Gabel is under arrest.

The 38-year-old actor, who starred in Scorpion and Game of Thrones, allegedly violently attacked his girlfriend, police told TMZ.

His girlfriend told police that she and the actor got into a verbal argument last week after he returned to their hotel room at the Bowery Hotel at around 3 a.m. after a night of drinking when things turned physical.

Elyes allegedly spit at her, and hurled physical threats at her like “I’m going to punch your f–king face in” before he reportedly took her phone, threw it down and shoved her onto the couch and choked her, resulting in redness and pain.

The police said that they were called 1 p.m. that day, and she refused medical attention.

Elyes was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault, criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, aggravated harassment, attempted assault and harassment. He was released without bail, and there is now a temporary order of protection against him placed on his girlfriend by a judge.

His attorney Stacey Richman issued a statement denying allegations.

“While the claims are sensationalistic, they are not accurate. Elyes would never conduct himself in the manner alleged. Nevertheless he will not disparage the complainant and looks forward to the facts emerging through the legal process,” the attorney said.
