Police in Mumbai, India, arrested three British bodyguards working for Angelina Jolie after they allegedly roughed up parents and students at a Mumbai school where the actress had been filming scenes for "A Mighty Heart."

The fracas took place Thursday afternoon when the gates of the Anjuman-e-Islam school, which had been locked during filming, were opened to let parents pick up their children.

Police identified the bodyguards, who were arrested Friday, as Thomas McAdam, 47; Robert Dunn, 35; and Michael Brett, 50.

M.H. Belose, additional chief metropolitan magistrate, later freed them on bail and asked them not to leave the country for one week.

Jolie, in a statement, dismissed as a "horrible rumor" the claim by witnesses and the police prosecutor that her bodyguards had called people "bloody Indians."

"I would never work with anyone who was derogatory toward another man's race," the 31-year-old actress said.
