Pia Zadora's mug shot (LVMPD)
The 61-year-old star, still best known for her controversial Golden Globes win in 1982, was released on $4,000 bail, a relatively small amount. She's been married to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department detective Michael Jeffries since 2005, whom she met after filing a police report in a stalking case.
Zadora was a child star who began acting on Broadway and later segued into a brief film and music career. In 1982, she beat out Elizabeth McGovern and Kathleen Turner to win a Golden Globe Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "New Star of the Year," leading many to believe her wealthy casino owner husband, Meshulam Riklis, had bribed voters.
The award was for her role in the incest-themed film "Butterfly," which also won her a Razzie Award that same year.
Omg! has requested further information on the case when it becomes available from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Of course, we still love Zadora best from her fake Oscars performance along side the late Leslie Nielsen in "Naked Gun 33-1/2: The Final Insult," in which she danced with a tuba on her head. (Be sure to check out her grand finale stage dive, at 1:30.)
