Los Angeles police say actor Nick Stahl has been arrested for investigation of lewd conduct. The 33-year-old ‘‘Terminator 3’’ star was arrested about 8 p.m. Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard. He was booked on a misdemeanor count of lewd conduct and released from custody. The Los Angeles Times reports that Stahl was arrested at an adult movie shop during a routine undercover police operation. In May, Stahl had been reported missing by his wife, but he later turned up. Stahl was a child star who performed in the 1993 film ‘‘The Man Without a Face’’ with Mel Gibson. He also has appeared in the 2003-2005 HBO series ‘‘Carnivale” and starred in ‘‘Mirrors 2’’ in 2010. An e-mail seeking comment from his publicist was not immediately returned Friday.

Charges in killing

Eight former Chilean army lieutenants have been charged in the killing of communist singer and songwriter Victor Jara almost four decades ago. Appellate Court Magistrate Miguel Vazquez also ordered the arrest of Hugo Sanchez Marmonti and Pedro Barrientos Nunez, who lives in Florida, as the authors of the killing, and the other six former military officials as accomplices. All have been detained except Barrientos, who is expected to undergo extradition proceedings. Jara was detained along with many others at Chile’s State Technical University the day after the Sept. 11, 1972, coup that toppled President Salvador Allende. His body was found several days later, riddled with bullets and bearing signs of torture. The killing transformed Jara into a symbol of struggle against Latin America’s military right-wing dictatorships.
