Cops allowed Batman star Christian Bale to attend the biggest film premiere of the summer last night — despite him being accused of assault. Bale, 34, faces questioning over the claim — made by his own mother and sister. But he was able to attend the first European screening of new Batman blockbuster The Dark Knight in London’s West End.
