Edward Furlong, the Terminator actor was arrested on Sunday (January 12, 2013) for domestic assault and is now denying the claims, having pleaded not guilty. Furlong was taken into custody by police, who were called to a domestic disturbance at a Los Angeles residence. He was held on $50,000 bail according to The Toronto Sun.
Furlong already had an existing $30,000 warrant on him for a previous, similar arrest. He appeared in court yesterday but denied the charges. A new hearing date has been set for January 25, 2013. Things aren’t looking good for Furlong, though – he’s already got a history of domestic violence with his former partner Rachael, the mother of his child. They were only married for three years before Rachael filed for divorce and later filed for a restraining order against him, claiming that – amongst other allegations – he had told her he hit their son in the testicles. He is currently unable to visit his son Ethan, who is now six years old, without a restraining order.
Furlong’s career has taken a nose-dive in recent years. His supporting role in the revered 1998 movie American History X could be considered to be his last major movie role. Though he has several projects in post-production currently, he has struggled to regain the respect that he once had, now that his personal life has overshadowed his career.
There must be someone doing some research into the statistics of the amount of celebrities ending up with mug shots in comparison to numbers for the average Joe. Judging by the rate stars such as Edward Furlong end up with their mug shots plastered over the internet, we fear being famous is potentially an additional step on the long road to felonies. Furlong has been arrested for the third time regarding allegations of domestic abuse, TMZ reports.
Apparently, he was arrested in the very early hours of the 13th of January, in Los Angeles. He already had a warrant out for his arrest for a previous charge. He has been arrested before in October and then again in November of 2012, both of which were for 'bruising up' his girlfriend, one time in public in an airport.
Furlong appeared in Terminator 2 as a boy and continued his career in acting with appearances in American History X, and later in a recurring role in CSY: NY. However, since his relationship with drugs his spiralled out of control, and this time around his bail has been set at $50,000 and it seems he is still in custody. He was set to appear at a court hearing on Tuesday morning (15th Jan), reports E!.
Edward Furlong has unfortunately long since passed into the category of ‘wayward former child stars’, and the Terminator 2 actor (he was 14 when the film was released) has been arrested for a third time over domestic violence in the space of three months.
TMZ reports that Furlong was arrested by police at 5:45am Los Angeles time and, if that wasn’t grim enough, he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest stemming from one of his previous domestic violence incidents. Oh Eddie. Those two incidents are coupled with one back in October, when Furlong was taken in after an incident with his girlfriend at LAX – allegedly bruising her during an argument at the airport. The second incident is believed to have happened in November. Another weird incident occurred last year when Furlong's six year-old son Ethan - who he had with ex-wife Rachael Bella - somehow, allegedly, managed to test positive for cocaine whilst in his care.
Furlong was shot to fame in 1991 when playing the child John Connor in the second of the popular sci-fi series Terminator. It looked for a time like he’d live up to his early promise too, with follow up roles in American Heart and A Home Of Our Home in the early 90s also gaining good reports. However the last great film he was attached to was American History X, released in 1998, and though the work hasn’t dried up for the now-35 year-old, the quality of it has. The last film we can find of his was The Zombie King, which is rocking a mediocre 4.9 average rating on IMDB – not that many seem to have bothered reviewing it in the first place.

Singer Cee Lo Green has been accused of sexual battery against a woman in a restaurant in Los Angeles, TMZ reports.
Apparently, police have already been to a restaurant in down town LA to carry out questioning of the manager and his staff. The LAPD is keeping schtum about any of the details of the case, and by details we mean anything. The woman has remained unseen and unnamed, and what precisely Cee Lo is being accused of still remains unclear, let alone when or where the incident is said to have taken place.
Nevertheless, the Gnarls Barkley singer has stepped up to defend himself, saying that he has no idea what they're talking about. He said "Nothing ever happened [at the restaurant the claim reportedly alleges the assault too place at] or anywhere else." Plus, one source close to Cee Lo said , "I have never seen Cee Lo act in a physical way toward anybody." Apparently, Cee Lo hasn't been to the restaurant forthat was briefly investigated yesterday, in over three months. But, of course, without knowing when the incident is said to have taken place, sadly we can't say that proved Cee Lo's innocence. He is currently working on the American talent show 'The Voice' as a mentor. Edward Furlong and Flavor Flav have also been accused of assault this week.
Edward Furlong, who played John Connor in the second movie of the Terminator series, was arrested yesterday (30th Oct 2012) at LAX Airport. The Airport police gave a statement reported by E!: "On Oct. 30, 2012 at approximately 12:40 a.m., Los Angeles Airport Police officers responded to a call regarding a possible domestic violence investigation at Terminal 2 on the arrivals level."
He is now being held on a $50k bail charge. According to Ace Showbiz, Furlong was caught during an altercation with his girlfriend at the airport in which he grabbed her arm violently. In 2009 his now ex-wife accused him of battery after he beat her up. She then took out three restraining orders against him to protect herself and their 3 year old son. Cinema Blend reports that he left her a voicemail in 2010 in which he said "F*** you Rachael. I'm sick of you... you are such f***ing vermin... you are a cesspool of s***, that's what you are, you're nothing, you're nothing," which lead her to get the third restraining order out.
Edward Furlong burst onto the movie scene in his role as John Connor in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Since then he's had a fairly successful career, including a poignant role in the harrowing, though moving, American History X. In that time he has had numerous brushes with the law and has been battling a serious drug dependency problem, flitting in and out of rehab for many years. Despite being a talented actor, Furlong's career has spiralled downwards and his latest ventures have been largely unsuccessful.
Remember Edward Furlong? The hugely promising actor who broke through as John Connor in Terminator 2? Well, if you've heard of him, you're probably aware he hasn't had the best couple of years. His personal problems reached a crescendo on Tuesday morning (October 30, 2012) when arrested for felony domestic violence at LAX airport.
According to law enforcement sources who spoke with TMZ.com, Furlong allegedly got physical with his girlfriend at around 1am, grabbing her arm during an argument at the airport. When officers arrived, she had visible marks on her arm and the actor was immediately taken into custody. At the moment, he's still sitting in jail, though bail has been set at $50,000.
Furlong has had a funny old career, which began after he scooped a flurry of awards for his performance alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2. He followed it up with a couple of decent turns in indie flicks like Before and After and Little Odessa. In 1993, Aerosmith decided against featuring Alicia Silverstone in their video for 'Livin' on the Edge' (she had appeared in all other videos for Get a Grip) choosing Furlong instead. After several more movie roles, he delivered arguably his finest role in American History X, alongside Edward Norton. He played the younger brother of a neo-Nazi who is released from prison. The role landed Furlong a Young Artist Award nomination for Best Performance in a Feature Film, though he eventually lost out to Star Trek: Insurrection's Michael Welch. And then thing started to go wrong.
