An actor that portrayed a young Will Ferrell in the 2006 comedic movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, is once again in trouble with the law in real life.

Luke Bigham, 20, was arrested on Tuesday for domestic violence harassment after he allegedly “pushed his mother into the stairs,” according to Trussville, Alabama police Lt. Jeff Bridges.

According to various news reports, Bigham’s 42-year-old mother, Lorrie Crumley, said she did not want medical treatment but complained of pain after the incident.

Bigham is scheduled to appear at an arraignment on Friday if he doesn’t post a $1,000 misdemeanor bond by then.

Bigham is still awaiting trial for another episode in early June when he was arrested for reckless driving. Police claim Bigham was doing 80 mph in a 35 mph zone in downtown Trussville when he was involved in a five-vehicle crash that injured three people, including himself. The crash was caught on surveillance camera.

Bigham also appeared in the 2009 HBO comedy “Eastbound and Down.”

    Who cares? This site is full of mundane articles. I don’t go to Hardballtalk and see “Oh, the actor who played Raul Ibanez in Money Ball is (fill in the blank)”. Seriously, what does this have to do with motorsports? Who is this guy? Oh, he had five seconds of screen time in a one star movie? Let’s devote an article to him on a racing website!

    If Will Farrel (you know, someone who actually matters) said something like “Nascar sucks” (which it does), that would be news to put on this website, MAYBE. I mean hell, no one who comments or reads articles on this website cars about this guy. Talking about other articles, no one cares that Dale JR’s. girlfriend has a little nickname for him. No one cares that he “revealed a deep dark secret” about nose bleeds. NOSE BLEEDS!

    I go to Hardballtalk and 99% of the time, I get top of the line, informative, professional articles about the sport and the players and the teams. Stuff that actually matters. Stuff like injuries, which, speaking of injuries, I don’t think I saw a single article about Kimi Raikkonen having an ankle injury. That’s news! Where’s the article?! Did I miss it? a former World Champion and someone who is driving for the most successful team in the sport gets injured, and there’s no article, but yet, I get to see stuff about this guy, and an endless barrage of Dale Jr. stuff.

      And you took the time time to read them, than have the balls to complain. Smh

        Actually, no, I didn’t read any of the articles. This one I opened just to comment on, the nose bleed one said all that it needed to say in the title, and the one where his girlfriend has some little nickname for him was, again, said in the title.

    I was laughing when I saw this article on the scroll thing at the top of the page.

    Still laughing.
