On the heels of his arrest, Josh Brolin stepped out for the premiere of Frozen River Tuesday, but avoided reporters and politely declined to pose for photographs.

"Sorry, I'm kind of in a bad predicament right now!" Brolin, 40, told photographers with a smile, after he arrived at the West Hollywood event with his two children minutes before the movie started.

He attended the premiere to support the film's star, Melissa Leo, a longtime friend and a costar in a TV show they did together.

On Saturday, Brolin also was spotted with Sean Penn, Robin Wright Penn and director Oliver Stone at Locanda Portofino in Santa Monica. An observer said Brolin appeared to be in a good mood, dancing a jig outside the restaurant and giving Penn a bear hug. The group also posed for pictures with the restaurant valet men and joked with fellow diners.

Brolin was arrested on July 12 along with fellow actor Jeffrey Wright and five others in connection with a bar fight in Shreveport, La., where they'd been filming W, which Stone is directing.
