Initially, Josh Brolin and Diane Lane met on the sets of The Road Killers. But their romance started after their meet at the premiere party of A Beautiful Mind. In the year 2004, after dating for almost one year the couple exchanged vows in a wedding ceremony conducted in Los Angeles. The ex-couple included their children from respective husbands in the ceremony as well. After tieing knots in August of 2004, in December Brolin was arrested for the charges of spousal battery. He was accused of hitting his newly wedded wife as she directly called the LAPD. The couple’s reps spoke to The New York Daily News to set the record straight about what actually happened at the residence and why Brolin was arrested.
“There was a misunderstanding at their home. … [The arrest was] for the lowest-end misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. … Diane did not want to press charges and asked them not to arrest him, but in cases involving the possibility of any physical contact, the police have to arrest first, ask questions later.”
After the Sicario actor posted bail of $20000 and came back home, the ex-couple were “embarrassed” as to where this situation led them too. Further too, Brolin was arrested again with five others in the year 2009 for a morning bar fight.
