Former porn star Jenna Jameson has addressed her weekend (06Apr13) battery arrest, insisting she was trying to stop a friend from robbing her.

The actress' victim made a citizen's arrest as she called police, who took Jameson into custody in Newport Beach, California. She was cited for battery and was subsequently released on her own recognisance.

She will face battery charges in court at a later date.

Taking to Twitter.com, Jameson told followers that a friend broke into her house and "took everything", adding the pal "accused me of gusting her".
