Eddie Furlong was arrested yet again for violating a restraining order his ex-girlfriend has against him. The arrest came on Thursday when the Terminator 2 star allegedly became verbally abusive to his ex.
Police say that Furlong was arrested on Thursday in West Hollywood, California for violating the terms of his probation. They added that the 35-year-old actor was charged with a felony for violating the restraining order.
There have apparently been multiple reported instances of domestic abuse by Furlong. He is currently behind bars on a $100,000 bail. His court date is expected to be Monday.
The latest restraining order was the result of a January domestic violence charge — his third in the span of three months. In January, he was sentenced to six months in jail, though it appears he was released early. The early release goes against Superior Court Judge Dennis Mulcahy’s recommendation not to release the actor early or to give him credit for time served.
Eddie Furlong’s domestic violence problems appeared in the court system in November 2010, when he was placed on three years’ probation for violating a restraining order against him by his then-wife, Rachael Kneeland. He was then arrested in October 2012 for allegedly assaulting his then-girlfriend, Monica Keena, while the pair were at the Los Angeles International Airport.
As a result of his arrest, Eddie Furlong was fired by producers of the romantic comedy he was filming, Other Plans. His arrests in January and March were related to the restraining order filed by Keena. It appears the latest arrest also deals with the Keena restraining order.
Cops allegedly discovered Furlong hiding under a stairwell near his ex’s home in West Hollywood after they responded to her 911 call alerting them to his presence in her home. It is likely that Eddie Furlong won’t be let off as easily this time.
