The nephew of Oscar-winning movie director Martin Scorsese has been arrested on trespassing charges.

The NYPD says Frank Scorsese tried to enter a Staten Island home by cutting through the screen door with a knife.

Scorsese, of Staten Island, was arraigned Saturday on charges including criminal trespass and criminal possession of a weapon. He was ordered held on $20,000 bail. It's unclear if he has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.

A criminal complaint says the 41-year-old Scorsese was caught on video ripping the screen door off the West Brighton home Friday night and kicking the inner door. Police say he fled the scene when he was confronted by the homeowner.

The Daily News reports that police couldn't say why he was allegedly at the home.
