Will Smith has not been arrested for assaulting Chris Rock during The Oscars.
On Sunday night, Smith slapped Rock for making a joke about his wife’s bald hair during the Oscars ceremony.
Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith being in "G.I. Jane" because of her bald head. She's spoken openly about having a hair loss condition. Will Smith ran on stage, slapped Rock, then screamed twice at the top of his lungs "KEEP MY WIFE'S NAME OUT OF YOUR F-NG MOUTH."

According to various reports, Rock has yet to contact police to press charges over the slap which is why Smith hasn’t been apprehended by police.
Regarding on stage incident between Chris Rock and Will Smith at the Oscars. Rock would have to file a police report for the LAPD to get involved. Sources tell us nobody from Rock's team has contacted the LAPD indicating he wants to do that. Would be misdemeanor battery at most.
