Less than two weeks after announcing she planned to launch a career in adult entertainment, Steven Spielberg’s daughter Mikaela Spielberg has been arrested for domestic violence.

Mikaela, 23, was taken into custody in Nashville, Tenn. Saturday morning on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, inmate records show. Her $1,000 bail was quickly posted, and authorities released her Saturday at 5:41 p.m.

Her fiancé Chuck Pankow confirmed the arrest to Fox News, telling the outlet the incident was “a misunderstanding.”  Pankow, 47, declined to say what exactly happened or who was involved, but noted “no one is hurt.”

The arrest follows Mikaela’s Feb. 19 interview with The Sun, saying she is pursuing a career as an adult film star and exotic dancer.

“I got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body. Frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body,” Mikaela told the tabloid. She said her stage name is “Sugar Star.”

She insisted her parents are “intrigued” by her new career path.

Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw adopted Mikaela when she was a child. The aspiring adult film star said in the interview that she was a rebellious child who battled anxiety, eating disorders, depression and drinking issues. She was sent to a boarding school for troubled teens, but said she “came out of there worse than I was going in.”
