Now, while there are a whole lot of interesting ways in which celebrities have been arrested in recent months, but the vast majority of them were for fairly apolitical reasons. 2016 may have been they year that we collectively set fire to courteous political discourse and then proceeded to shout at each other over the ashes, but celebrities largely limited their involvement to twitter and fundraising, rather than acts of civil disobedience — aside from, say, Shailene Woodley, who was arrested at Standing Rock for that most dangerous of all activities: peaceful protest.

It seems that things may have taken a turn for the punchy, however, since events this weekend have left us asking:

Yup, that . The one best known for playing Weasel in , and Erlich Bachman in , and whose latest movie, , is currently in theaters.

Y'see, according to TMZ, Miller was arrested early Friday morning, reportedly following an altercation with an Uber driver. An altercation which, if reports are to be believed, began after the pair argued about . Which, with Miller being a vocal opponent of the President-elect...

...would seem to suggest that yes, T.J. Miller did indeed probably just get arrested for punching a Trump supporter. Or, at least, was just arrested on the assumption that he did so, something that very much remains to be proven. We are, after all, at least two years away from living in a Trumpian, Escape From New York-style dystopia, and as such the assumption of innocence remains a legal constant.

Whether any of that in any way explains — let along vindicates — resorting to violence, though is, of course, entirely up to you. And, presumably, the LAPD.

Want more Weasel-related news? Never fear, we've got you covered right here.

In the meantime, though, what do you think? Who would win an a fight: Donald Trump or T.J. Miller? Let us know below!
