Twenty-one-year-old Nicholas Van Varenberg’s arrest last weekend was pretty intense, according to police footage obtained by TMZ.

The youngest son of Jean-Claude Van Damme was arrested on Sunday following a disturbance in Arizona. Police arrived at the scene to find a trail of blood leading to Varenberg’s apartment, and his roommate let them inside.

They investigated and left, but the roommate then ran downstairs claiming Varenberg had just been holding him at knifepoint for letting them in.
