Jared Padalecki‘s arrest over the weekend has thus far not affected production on Supernatural, according to multiple reports.

Deadline reports that the series is about halfway through production on its 20-episode 15th and final season, currently airing on The CW.

According to the outlet, Texas native Padalecki was home in Austin on a planned break when the incident happened. He is reportedly not scheduled to be back at work in Vancouver, where Supernatural films, until later this week.

TV Line also reports that the actor’s arrest is not expected to disrupt production.

The CW did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Reps for Padalecki, who plays Sam Winchester on the show, have not responded.

As first reported by TMZ, Padelecki, 37, was arrested early Sunday outside of Stereotype, a downtown Austin club that he frequents, after he allegedly struck two club employees in the face.

According to arrest affidavits obtained by PEOPLE, Padalecki was charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault with injury. In the affidavit, the officer who responded to the disturbance call said Padalecki “appeared to be intoxicated” and was “swaying side to side while standing.” He was placed in handcuffs while the officer investigated the situation, according to the affidavit.

The officer stated in the affidavit that he was told by witnesses that a verbal argument had occurred between Padalecki and people inside the bar, which then became physical. According to the affidavit, Padalecki allegedly struck the assistant manager of the bar, who had tried to intervene, as well as the general manager, causing the latter to bleed. The general manager also advised the officer that Padalecki is the owner of the bar, according to the affidavit.

According to the affidavit, both employees stated that they wanted to pursue charges against Padalecki for assault; he was then placed under arrest.

Padelecki is not currently in custody, according to Travis County Jail online records. He is due in court on Nov. 18, according to online records accessed by PEOPLE.

The actor’s wife, Genevieve Cortese Padalecki, has not directly addressed the arrest but tweeted a heart emoji on Tuesday, seemingly in response to an influx of supportive tweets from fans.

The couple has three kids: sons Thomas Colton, 7, and Austin Shepherd, 5, and daughter Odette Elliott, 2.

Padalecki appears to be a regular at Stereotype, and previously posted about the ’90s-themed club on Instagram in September 2018 for its grand opening.
