T.J. Miller Arrested for Battery Following Trump Fight

Comedian and actor T.J. Miller, best known for his role as Erlich Bachman on HBO's Silicon Valley, was arrested in Hollywood around 1 a.m. Friday morning when LAPD officers responded to a call from a driver for a transporation company, who had picked him up from the GQ Men of the Year party at Chateau Marmont. The driver reportedly accused Miller of slapping him in the head following an altercation about President-elect Donald Trump. Miller, who also stars in Office Christmas Party, released in theaters today, was released on $20,000 bail.

The Daily Beast reached out to a representative for the Critics' Choice Awards, which Miller is scheduled to host this Sunday night in Santa Monica. Asked if he will stay on as host following the arrest, the spokesperson replied, "Yes, he will be."
