Penn was arrested late Saturday night after allegedly assaulting a friend during an altercation at a Maui hotel. The arrest was first reported by MauiWatch.com and later confirmed by Steph Daniels of Bloody Elbow. The Maui County Police Department declined to give any specifics about the case when contacted by Daniels, as did members of Penn's camp.
