NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) -- Mikaela Spielberg, the daughter of director Steven Spielberg, was arrested in relation to a domestic incident early Saturday morning.

Spielberg was charged with domestic assault causing bodily injury, according to a Metro Nashville Police Department affidavit.

Officers said Spielberg and her boyfriend returned from a bar and got into an argument just before 4:00 a.m. The incident escalated after the victim made a "rude comment" toward Spielberg and she reportedly started to throw objects at him.

One object struck the victim in his hand causing observable injury. Police observed the injuries and said they appeared fresh and recent.

The object striking the hand caused dried blood, a swollen wrist and marks. Both parties admitted to the domestic dispute when police arrived at the scene.

Later, Spielberg changed her version of the story and made conflicting statements, according to police. Officers determined Spielberg was the aggressor that based on the victim's statements, the observable injuries and her conflicting statements.

Spielberg was taken into custody and waived her Miranda rights voluntarily. The victim refused to prosecute her for the alleged domestic assault, however, officers are prosecuting on the victim's behalf.

Spielberg was booked into Metro Jail on a $1,000 bond.
