Aron Ralston, Whose Story Inspired 127 Hours, Arrested for Domestic Violence

Originally posted 12/09/2013 10:15AM

Aron Ralston, who gained widespread attention when he cut off his forearm to free himself after becoming trapped by a dislodged boulder in a Utah canyon, has been arrested in Denver over allegations of domestic violence after a fight with his girlfriend, police say.

Ralston and Vita Shannon, both 38, were each booked Sunday on charges of assault and "wrongs to minors."

Police documents allege Shannon struck Ralston twice in the back of the head with her fists and that he shoved her as she was leaving her apartment.

The wrongs-to-minors charge is used when children are present during an incident but not necessarily hurt. Police documents say the couple's 8-week-old child was present at the time of the altercation but apparently suffered no harm.

She's due with her first child this summer, but Dido isn't waiting for a delivery room surprise.

"I'm too curious," the singer-songwriter, 39, told the Associated Press of finding out the sex of her baby. "It's enough of a surprise on the day."

Although Dido and husband Rohan are focusing much of their attention on their upcoming new addition, 2011 is shaping up to be a big year in other ways as well – her song 'If I Rise' from the film 127 Hours was nominated for an Academy Award, and a new album is almost completed.

"I'm nearly done," explains Dido of the new record. "Music will just start coming out as this year goes on."

Although reports have surfaced of people fainting as they watch James Franco amputate his arm playing Aron Ralston in 127 Hours, the actor says he himself has had no problem.

"I admit that I get a little queasy, especially when it comes to blood around my arms," Franco told PEOPLE at the Palm Springs International Film Festival opening night gala. "When I go to the doctor for a checkup and they draw blood, I admit, I'm not good at that at all."

However, "when I watched that scene, I was fine," Franco, 32, says with a laugh.
