Donald "Don" Cornelius, the 72-year-old creator and longtime host of the iconic television show "Soul Train," was arrested Friday night on suspicion of felony domestic violence, police said.

Los Angeles Police were called to Cornelius' home in the 12000 block of Mulholland Drive about 7:15 p.m. Friday, said Officer Norma Eisenman. Cornelius was arrested and taken to Van Nuys jail at 8 p.m., Eisenman said.

It was not clear whom Cornelius was suspected of assaulting, Eisenman said. No one was taken to the hospital after the incident, according to police reports.

Cornelius was released at 5 a.m. today after posting $50,000 bail, Eisenman said. He is scheduled to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court Nov. 14.

Cornelius began producing "Soul Train" in 1970 and was its host until 1993. The show featured rhythm and blues, soul and hip-hop artists, not to mention its catchy "Sooooooooooo-ul Train" slogan.
