Irish actor Stuart Townsend will not face any charges over a domestic incident with his wife in September in the US.

A representative for Mr Townsend told Newstalk.com the Santa Monica City Attorney has "rejected bringing charges against him" in connection with an argument he and his wife had on September 5th.

A statement adds: "This ends the matter. Agatha and Stuart Townsend are grateful to the Santa Monica Police and City Attorney's office for the work they do protecting the community."

Reports at the time said neighbours called police when they heard screaming coming from his Santa Monica home in California.

He was released after posting bail of US$50,000 (€45,123).

Townsend told celebrity website TMZ the couple had already resolved their issues when police arrived.

He added they both "look forward to this being resolved speedily", and returning to their quiet lives.

Dublin-born Townsend is known for films such as 'Queen of the Damned', 'About Adam' and 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen'.

He has also appeared in several TV shows, including 'Will & Grace' and 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit'.

Townsend was previously engaged to South African actress Charlize Theron.
