When there's an outburst, it means a large amount of material has fallen into the hole in a short period of time. Like a black hole isn't mysterious enough, researchers have now found one emitting rapidly-swinging jets.

Cops responded to a similar call on April 2, when Schroder was arrested for the same charge, amid claims suggesting he had punched his girlfriend in the face as she tried to leave the property.

He was released in that case after posting bail.

Schroder got his start in show business at an early age, appearing alongside Jon Voight in the 1979 film remake "The Champ" and in the 1980s on the sitcom "Silver Spoons". The couple had been married for 23 years. They have four children together.

His ex-wife cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce and reportedly filed just weeks shy of the couple's 24th wedding anniversary.
