Australian actress Laura McCulloch, who was reported missing in LA, was actually behind bars for biting a police officer

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (KABC) — An Australian actress who went missing after a first date in Los Angeles has been found behind bars.

Laura McCulloch, 37, was arrested in Santa Monica on Friday night and charged with suspected assault on a police officer and public intoxication.

The Santa Monica Police Department announced Tuesday that she has been in jail since the night she was arrested.

McCulloch’s family, who live in Australia, reported her missing to the LAPD when they didn’t hear from her after their date on Friday night. They said she was dating someone she met through a dating app.

Her family posted on social media asking for help locating her.

Santa Monica Police said officers were called to the popular Gyu Kaku Japanese BBQ restaurant on Third Street Promenade after McCulloch, whom they describe as a sign of poisoning, threw a drink at a diner and his 2-year-old child .

“While conducting the investigation, McCulloch assaulted officers while yelling expletives,” the Santa Monica Police Department said in a release. “Despite efforts to calm her down, McCulloch continued to exhibit aggressive behavior.

It’s unclear what role the date she left on Friday night played in her arrest.

McCulloch’s acting career appears to have been primarily in the theatre.

After being made aware that the actress was in police custody, McCulloch’s family in Australia released that she was found safe and thanked the public for their support.

Police say she was brought before a judge on Tuesday.

Prison records show she was released on her own and her next court date is September 15.
