'Green Hornet' star Edward Furlong jailed in Los Angeles. 'Green Hornet' star Edward Furlong was jailed by a Los Angeles judge on Tuesday. The court ruled that he allegedly violated a restraining order.
The actor, 33, was jailed after a hearing for the order, obtained by Rachael Kneeland, who Furlong has a 4-year-old son with. The couple is currently going through a bitter divorce, and Kneeland alleges that last Sept. 23, Furlong "grabbed me, bruised me, pushed me ... left messages saying he would hire people to come and beat me with chains and bats. He is smoking cocaine and doing other various drugs. He is very unpredictable."
Though Furlong denied the allegations, a judge issued a three-year order to stay 100 yards away from Kneeland and ordered him to go to counseling. He was jailed for violating that order, but posted bail a few hours later.
Furlong, who starred in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and the new "The Green Hornet" flick, was handcuffed in court Tuesday morning and and taken to jail. The arrest came the morning after he attended a movie premiere, where he was "in the best mood," a friend told People.com.
