Actor Edward Furlong arrested by California police
(CNN) — Actor Edward Furlong tried to hide, but ended up caught and behind bars in California for allegedly violating a protective order filed against him by an ex-girlfriend, authorities said.
West Hollywood, California, deputies responded at 5:44 p.m. Thursday to a call about a possible violation of a protection order, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Friday in a news release.
They found the suspect -- the 35-year-old actor best known for his role in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" -- hiding on a nearby property. He was arrested and brought to a sheriff's substation in West Hollywood, authorities said.
After his breakthrough role in 1991 alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Furlong went on to play roles in a number of movies, including "American History X," and TV projects, such as "CSI-NY."
