The Breakfast Club actor was arrested after he yelled at neighbours and tore up plants at several properties near his home in Playa del Rey, according to TMZ.
A neighbour performed a citizen's arrest on Hall after he allegedly pounded on people's doors. Police arrived to arrest the actor soon after. Hall was booked for disturbing the peace, but was released after midnight.
Hall's neighbours have since claimed that he has behaved aggressively and erratically in recent weeks. He is said to have cursed at passers-by, as well as squirting strangers with a hose.
A source told TMZ: "I have considered buying a gun to stay safe from Hall. He's the scariest person I've ever encountered in my life."
Anthony Michael Hall was accused of stalking by his ex-girlfriend in 2009.
