Jean-Claude Van Damme's son reportedly arrested over knife dispute

Jean-Claude Van Damme's youngest son Nicholas Van Varenberg was arrested at least twice before his most recent assault charge, can exclusively reveal.

According to police report, Van Varenberg was then arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful imprisonment, marijuana possession, assault-cause fear of physical injury, disorderly conduct-fighting and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police officers responded to a call from neighbors of 21-year-old Nicholas Van Varenberg after he reportedly punched an elevator door.

Spanish media said locals and tourists were ordered away from cafe and bar terraces and told to take refuge inside premises. The group changed plans after explosive material intended for the attack was destroyed in an accidental blast.

When officers arrived at the scene a trail of blood was seen leading to his apartment.

The cops had a chat with Nicholas and his unnamed roommate and discovered he had injured his hand and subsequently left.

About 20 minutes later, Van Varenberg's roommate ran downstairs and claimed that he escaped his apartment after Van Varenberg allegedly held him at knifepoint and refused to allow him to leave the apartment.

Like his famous father, Van Varenberg is an actor. Authorities then searched the apartment and allegedly found the knife in question as well as marijuana. The roommate said Nicholas was upset that he let police enter the apartment.

He's the son of Van Damme and model Darcy LaPier.
