“They were not physically hurt, but obviously their emotions are running high,” Los Angeles Police Department detective Sal LaBarbera told KTLA.

“It’s just so very unfortunate that a domestic incident like this occurs, we have two young children that lost their mom and now their dad is in jail, most likely will be in prison for this.”

Jace is best known for his role as Julien Lowe in television drama The Shield, but has also appeared in SouthlandForrest Gump, Planet of the Apes and Boogie Nights.

The 51-year-old is still in custody with a $1 million bail, according to a police spokesperson.
