Kill Bill star Michael Madsen was arrested in Malibu on Wednesday evening, weeks after the death of his son from a suspected suicide.

Michael, 64, who is known for starring in films such as Sin City and Die Another Day was escorted by three police cars to the hospital before heading to the police station.

Images obtained by The Sun show the Hollywood icon with his hands restrained behind his back while being taken to a police vehicle by an officer who was armed.

According to The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department website, Michael was booked just after midnight on Thursday, with his bail set to $500.

After officers arrived at his home on Wednesday at 9:30pm, Michael was transported to West Hills Hospital, and he was seen leaving the venue hours later.

American cops then took the restrained star to the police station roughly after midnight.

The unexpected news of his arrest comes after the actor's son Hudson, was found dead from an alleged self-inflicted gunshot wound while on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Hudson previously served in the US Army and posted pictures on his social media that he took while serving in Afghanistan.

Confirming his death at the time, a spokeswoman for the Department of the Medical Examiner in Honolulu said: "I can confirm Hudson Lee Madsen, 26, died by a gunshot wound to the head in a suspected suicide on the island of Oahu."

Hudson's Facebook shows that he lived in Wahiawa, Hawaii, with his wife Carlie.

In a joint statement, the family said to The Blast: "We are heartbroken and overwhelmed with grief and pain at the loss of Hudson. His memory and light will be remembered by all who knew and loved him."

Last month, Thelma and Louise star Michael shared his heartbreak regarding his son's untimely death.

Talking to The Times he said: "I am in shock as my son, whom I just spoke with a few days ago, said he was happy – my last text from him was 'I love you dad.'

"I didn’t see any signs of depression. It’s so tragic and sad. I’m just trying to make sense of everything and understand what happened."

He added: "He was looking towards his future, so it's mind-blowing. I just can’t grasp what happened."
