Aaron Grissom, who works as the executive chef at Los Angeles' Bow & Truss restaurant and appears on the current season of Top Chef Boston, has been arrested for domestic violence. According to TMZ, the chef — who often provokes fights on the famed Bravo show — was arrested at his home in the San Fernando Valley earlier this week after pushing his girlfriend "hard enough" that she sustained a knee injury.
According to police at the Van Nuys jail where he was taken, Grissom was "booked for infliction of corporal injury on a spouse." He was released yesterday after posting bail set at $50,000.
Meanwhile, Grissom came out a winner on last night's episode of Top Chef. His burger on white bread won praise from the judges.
Bravo has not yet released a statement regarding the incident.
