PAIN IN THE NECK Haddon threw a glass that opened a gash on Slater's neck

We haven't seen much of Christian Slater since ''Windtalkers'' last summer, but this is probably not the way he wanted to resurface. According to The Smoking Gun, Slater was allegedly the target of a flying glass, hurled by his wife, Ryan Haddon Slater, on Monday; the projectile opened a gash on his neck that required 20 stitches to close. Ryan Slater, a 31-year-old TV producer, was arrested for domestic battery , booked at Las Vegas' Clark County Detention Center, and freed after posting bond.

The incident allegedly occurred at 7 a.m. in the couple's hotel suite at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, according to Las Vegas Metro Police, whose mugshot of Mrs. Slater is posted at The Smoking Gun. The 34-year-old ''Heathers'' star was treated at Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center.

Slater's not a stranger to domestic violence cases, having served two months in 1998 on battery and drug charges, stemming from an incident in which he punched a pre-Haddon girlfriend in the face. He and Haddon married in 2000, a few months after the birth of their son; they've since had a daughter as well.
