Miami - Authorities say Australian actor Matthew Newton has been released from a Miami jail following a weekend arrest.

A Miami-Dade County jail official says the 35-year-old Newton was arrested on Friday evening on charges of resisting police and trespassing on property after a warning. He was released on Saturday evening on $2 000 bond.

Newton has had legal troubles before.

In 2010, Australian Transformers actress Rachael Taylor took out a restraining order against then-boyfriend Newton, accusing him of violently assaulting her while the couple were on holiday in Rome. He was dropped as host of a new Australian talent series.

In 2007, he pleaded guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Brooke Satchwell during a breakup argument. Earlier that year, Newton spent 28 days in a Melbourne rehab clinic that specialises in drug and alcohol issues.
