B-movie actress Pia Zadora was arrested this weekend on charges related to domestic violence.

According to an Associated Press report, Zadora was arrested on Saturday morning for suspicion of domestic battery and coercion. Police had been called to her Las Vegas residence some hours before for an undisclosed disturbance.

The identity of the alleged victim of the battery has not been revealed by police. The 61-year-old Zadora married Las Vegas police detective Michael Jefferies in 2005.

Zadora began her acting career in the early 60s, appearing in the Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof and in the movie Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. During the 80s she took roles in B-movie productions such as Fake-Out and Voyage of the Rock Aliens.

As her acting career began to falter, Zadora turned to singing. She began releasing standards albums and found success with albums such as Pia & Phil, and I Am What I Am. She now tours and performs across the U.S.
