Game of Thrones star Sean Bean was arrested Wednesday and questioned on suspicion of sending abusive text messages and making harassing phone calls to his ex-wife Georgina Sutcliffe.
“A 53-year-old man attended a central London police station by appointment yesterday, where he was arrested on suspicion of harassment and bailed until a later date,” a Scotland Yard spokesman tells PEOPLE. According to police, the man was questioned but not charged.
The Daily Mirror identified the man as Bean, 53, and posted a photo of him arriving at the police station.
Bean, who played Eddard Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones, married the actress Sutcliffe – his fourth wife – in 2008. They were divorced in 2010.
Last year Bean was stabbed outside a London bar by a stranger who reportedly made lewd comments toward a Playboy model.
Reps for the actor did not immediately respond to request for comment.
