Ronnie Wood recently divorced his wife of 24 years
Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood has been arrested on suspicion of assault, Surrey police have confirmed.
Wood's spokesman told BBC News that he was arrested after an "incident", but declined to comment further.
A police spokesman said: "We can confirm that a 62-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault in connection with a domestic incident."
The musician has been released on bail until a later date in January, pending "further enquiries".
Last month the rock star was divorced by his wife Jo on the grounds of his admitted adultery, after 24 years of marriage.
The couple split in 2008 after the musician began a relationship with another woman.
In the divorce documents, which have been made public, the person with whom the star committed adultery was not named.
However, Wood's relationship with Ekaterina Ivanova, 20, was widely covered in the tabloid press.
In July 2008, the guitarist was admitted to a rehabilitation centre for help with his long-established alcohol addiction.
