Just a few weeks after her mother's funeral, Julia Roberts has been rocked by another family tragedy: has exclusively learned that her husband Danny Moder's troubled sister, Jyl Moder, was arrested after a bar fight.

According to a police report obtained by Radar, Jyl was arrested just after midnight on July 20 on Bursera Way in Palm Desert. An insider told Radar the arrest followed a verbal fight at the bar at Sullivan's Steakhouse in Palm Desert, just over a mile away. But a manager at Sullivan's denied any knowledge of the incident.

The arrest report states Jyl was booked into Indio County jail at 1:21 am, and charged with felony inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant. According to the California penal code, such charges mean she "willfully inflicted corporal injury" that left her victim in a "traumatic condition."

She faces up to four years in jail and/or a $6,000 fine.

As Radar has reported, Jyl has been a constant source of strain for Roberts and her spouse.

Insiders previously said that Jyl blamed Roberts for the death of her mother, Patti Moder, from a heart attack in 2011.

Roberts has faced her share of family drama in recent years: Her half-sister Nancy Motes died in February 2014, after accusing her of being a "B*TCH" in brutal rants published days before her death.

Her mother, Betty Motes, then died in February, and was buried in May.
