Embattled actor Edward Furlong is back behind bars after a judge doubled his bail.

The Terminator 2 Judgement Day star is facing prosecution for allegedly violating a restraining order obtained by his ex-girlfriend Monica Keena after he was arrested near her Hollywood home on 16 May (13).

Previous reports suggested he was freed two days later after posting $100,000 (?64,516) bail, but it has since been revealed that that bond was only set at $50,000 (?32,258).

He returned to a Los Angeles court on Monday (10Jun13) when the judge overseeing the case decided $50,000 wasn't enough, and doubled it to $100,000, reports TMZ.com.

Furlong was unable to pay and was placed in handcuffs once again and hauled off to an L.A. County jail.

Another hearing has been scheduled for later this month (Jun13).

The former child star is no stranger to police - in March (13), he was ordered to serve 180 days in jail for refusing to stay away from Keena, although he was released soon after the sentence was handed down.

He had also been arrested twice before for using force against his former lover, which violated the three-year probation he was sentenced to in 2010 for breaking a civil protective order obtained by his estranged wife, Rachael Kneeland.
