The publication reported that the police were originally called to the scene when neighbours saw him punch an elevator.

But when his flatmate let them in, he's accused of becoming angry and holding his roomie at knifepoint once the officers had left.

It appears the roommate escaped and alerted the cops to the incident, which led to Nicholas being arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful imprisonment, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Earlier this year, Nicholas appeared alongside his dad in the film Kickboxer 2: Retaliation.
