Aaron Grissom, a contestant on the current shot-in-Boston season of “Top Chef,” is in hot water after being arrested in California for felony domestic violence. TMZ reports that Grissom was picked up by police at his San Fernando Valley home Tuesday after getting into a “heated argument” with his girlfriend during which Grissom allegedly pushed her, injuring her knee. Grissom, who works at Bow & Truss in North Hollywood, was booked for infliction of corporal injury on a spouse and then released after posting $50,000 bail. Grissom is a talented chef — his team won the “elimination challenge” on Wednesday’s episode of “Top Chef” — but he has displayed a bad temper at times, getting into arguments with other contestants on the show. “Top Chef” taped in Boston over the summer.
