LAS VEGAS (KRNV, & AP) — Singer-actress Pia Zadora has been arrested on suspicion of domestic battery and coercion after a disturbance at her Las Vegas home.

The 61-year-old Zadora was booked Saturday into the Clark County Detention Center and released after posting $4,000 bail.

She was arrested about 11 a.m., some six hours after police responded to a disturbance call at her home.

A neighbor who lives on Hawk Ridge in The Ridges portion of Summerlin sent our station in Las Vegas several pictures of a heavy SWAT presence during what Metro told him was a six-hour standoff.

Metro has not released any details about the arrest or standoff.

Police declined to release the name of the victim and other details, saying further information would be released Monday.

Zadora has been married to her third husband, Las Vegas police detective Michael Jeffries, since 2005. The couple met after Zadora contacted police to report a stalking incident.

After working as a child actress on Broadway, she appeared in various movies. When her film career failed to take off, she became a singer of popular standards.

One must question the need of the SWAT team response to a domestic violence incident. Though domestic violence can involve some of the more dangerous incidents police respond to, shock troops are hardly a reasonable response. Perhaps this was a training exercise for the team as even a standoff in a situation where the participants have firearms does not warrant the use of special forces to bring under control.
