The kid that ruined Terminator 2 is in jail again



From worstpreviews, Terminator 2 star Edward Furlong was arrested twice in the last several months for violently attacking his girlfriend. Eventually she filed a restraining order against him. And now comes word that Furlong is now in jail for violating that restraining order and once again roughing up his girlfriend.

Here is where it gets complicated. The judge set bail at $250,000, but ordered Furlong to remain in jail until his probation-violation hearing on March 4th. The actor received that probation, of three years, in November 2010 for violating a restraining order put in place by his then-wife.

To recap... Furlong violated a restraining order filed by his girlfriend, which triggered a probation-violation stemming from 2010 for violating a restraining order filed by his wife.

Thejudge was very frustrated with Furlong, telling him to start taking the stay-away order seriously, adding that the actor belongs in a lockdown treatment facility for substance abuse.

What a textbook douche. I'm having trouble fully hating him though because of his stellar work in Detroit Rock City.

He was decent in that John Waters movie, too, and I never thought he was all that bad in T2. But he's totally sucking at real life.
