Edward Furlong arrested at LAX airport for domestic violence
Former child actor Edward Furlong — who starred in the action movie “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” in 1991 — found himself in hot water again following his arrest early Tuesday morning for felony domestic violence after allegedly getting into a physical fight with his girlfriend.
According to law enforcement sources, police responded to an arrivals gate at LAX Airport shortly after midnight Tuesday to check a report of a couple arguing. “American History X” star Edward Furlong allegedly grabbed the arm of the woman he was with, leaving a mark.
Troubled actor Furlong was immediately taken into police custody and was booked on suspicion of felony domestic violence involving a spouse or girlfriend. However, the authorities did not identify the woman allegedly injured in the physical argument.
As of press time, Edward Furlong is still sitting in jail, and his bail has been set at $50,000.
This is not the first time Edward Furlong got arrested. When he got hospitalized in 2001 for a suspected heroin overdose, the actor has been picked up several times for public intoxication, for driving while intoxicated and driving without a license. Back in September 2009, he was arrested for allegedly threatening and punching Kneeland during a brawl, while last year, Furlong was arrested and put in jail again after he violated a restraining order requiring him to stay away from his wife.
Meanwhile, the divorce of Edward Furlong from wife Rachael Kneeland is still pending, amidst Kneeland’s allegations that the actor abused drugs and threatened to hire someone to beat her up. The former couple got married back in 2006 and have one son who is now six years old.
Furlong is a two-time Saturn Award nominee, winning the 1992 Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor for his work in “Terminator 2.” He also won the 1992 MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance for his work in the film.
