One of the creators of Rick and Morty, Justin Roiland is facing legal problems. A California court charged him with domestic violence.
The report, as shared by NBC News (via ComicBook), reveals that the case dates back to May 2020, after a complaint was filed against the actor. Roiland appeared in court earlier today for a pre-trial hearing.
Roiland received one felony charge of domestic battery with bodily harm and another felony charge of false imprisonment for menacing, violence, fraud and/or deceit.
NBC News says Roiland pleaded not guilty in 2020, and her team did not respond for comment when approached. At this time, the identity of the alleged victim remains anonymous.
It is said that she was dating Roiland at the time of the incident, and has since filed a protective order. Roiland was ordered to remain 100 meters away from the alleged victim and refrain from contacting her in any way. This order lasts until October 2023 at the moment.
