"Missing" and "Game of Thrones" actor Sean Bean has been arrested over claims of harassing his ex-wife.

Sean Bean is in trouble again and this time around it is for allegedly harassing his ex-wife. The actor was arrested for allegedly harassing his ex-wife, Georgina Sutcliffe, by sending her abusive text messages and even abusing her over the phone. The 53-year-old "Lord of the Rings" actor allegedly sent her these texts when he was in a really bad mood. He got arrested over his action and was taken to the Holborn police station in central London on "suspicion of harassment." Bean was later released on bail, and while he was there he was not identified by his name, as under the British law, the police do not identify the suspect by his name. Sean Bean even gave his finger prints and a DNA sample at the station.

It is still not clear why Sean Bean sent these messages to Georgina Sutcliffe. The couple got married in 2008 and separated after two years. In December 2010, their divorce was finalized citing 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for the split. Sean Bean and Georgina Sutcliffe met back in 2003, when Sutcliffe was working at a bar in a London theater, where Bean was playing a role in "Macbeth". The two clicked right from the beginning and a romance kicked-off between them. However, the romance did not last for long after their marriage. Just five months after their marriage, in July 2008, Bean was arrested on suspicion of assaulting his wife. The couple later claimed that it was just a domestic fight which had gotten out of control. Georgina Sutcliffe subsequently had to give a statement saying, "everything was blown out of proportion." After her statement, Sean Bean was released from jail and no further action was taken against him. The couple again separated after first years of their marriage, but later got back together. Eventually, they filed for a divorce in 2010.

Sean Bean had been married three times before he was married to Georgina Sutcliffe. He got married for the first time in 1981 with his childhood sweetheart, Debra James. The pair divorced in 1988 and in 1990 Bean was again ready to marry actress Melanie Hill. Bean had two daughters with her, but things again could not work out and he divorced Hill in 1997. Exactly a year after he married Abigail Cruttenden, who was his co-star in "Sharpe", Cruttenden gave birth to a girl but the couple divorced in 2000.
