Manu Bennett Stick Up For The Mother Of His Kids.
In 2015, the Hobbit actor, Manu Bennet was arrested by the police early at 6 AM in Texas and got released before noon with a bond of $1,600. His arrest took place after a 29 years old man allegedly claimed that Manu attacked him at the Grand Hyatt hotel in San Antonio. However, Manu as an honest man did not deny the incident and accepted the fact that he was drunk and out at night. He said to a panel,
'I'm not going to hide about something that happened last week in Texas. I'm a human being I was out at night, drunk.'

Matt Nable, a witness from the incident, said that Manu was very offended but yet, is actions were out of control. He said,
'[Bennett] was very, very offended about what the man had said to him. What he did was out of character, but he was obviously very offended by it.’
Manu also expressed his deep regret upon humiliating his family, community and himself. As far as family is concerned, the reason for the alleged altercation was an assertion about the cancer battle of the mother of his three kids, Karin Horen.
