One of Justin Timberlake's bodyguards has reportedly been arrested in London.

While the Friends with Benefits actor was enjoying dinner with his co-star Mila Kunis at the English capital's Nobu restaurant, a member of Timberlake's personal security team allegedly became involved in an altercation with a photographer outside the eatery, The Sun reports.

The photographer then called the police, but the bodyguard had already left the scene. A man was later detained at The Dorchester hotel, where Timberlake is staying while he promotes his latest movie.

A spokesperson for Scotland Yard confirmed that an arrest had been made.

"Police were called to Berkeley Square at approximately 9.45pm last night," said the rep. "A man alleged he was assaulted. He suffered minor injuries. He did not require hospital treatment."

He continued: "Officers later arrested a 45-year-old man at a central London hotel on suspicion of common assault. He is being held at a central London police station. Enquiries are ongoing."

Timberlake recently revealed that he is "stoked" about the passage of New York's Marriage Equality Act, praising society for taking steps towards equality.

In mid-July, Timberlake received an invite to the Marine Corps Ball in November from Corporal Kelsey De Santis. He has said he will attend.
