Terminator 2's Edward Furlong Arrested in Second Domestic Violence Dispute

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.
