Edward Furlong

Edward Furlong has been arrested.

The 'Terminator 2' actor was jailed on Thursday (16.05.13) on suspicion of once again violating a restraining order held by his ex-girlfriend, a Los Angeles Sheriff Department's spokesman has revealed.

The 35-year-old actor - who is best known for playing John Connor alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the action sequel - was found hiding in a nearby property when the cops arrived on the scene just before 7pm.

He was released on Saturday (18.05.13) after being held on $100,000 bail.

Edward has had several similar run-ins with the law in the past pertaining to both his ex-wife and his ex-girlfriend.

The star was only recently released from prison after being sentenced to six months in jail in March for violating a 2010 restraining order banning him from contacting his estranged wife, Rachael Kneeland.

Prior to that, he was arrested twice for using force against his ex-girlfriend Monica Keena. He was charged with misdemeanour battery in January at the same LA address, after which a court imposed the protective order.

Back in March, Edward's lawyer explained the actor could have avoided jail time altogether if he had accepted a deal to go to rehab for drug addiction.

He told E! News: "We are hopeful that Mr. Furlong uses this experience, unpleasant as it may be, to revisit the issue of rehab when he is released."
