Actor Edward Furlong has been arrested on suspicion of violating a restraining order filed by his ex-girlfriend.

Los Angeles sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said that deputies responding to the scene on Thursday in West Hollywood found the Terminator 2 star hiding in a nearby property.

Jail records show he was later released after being held on 100,000 dollar (£66,000) bail.

In March, the 35-year-old actor had been sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation in a 2010 case for violating a similar restraining order.

He has been the subject of such orders taken out by both his ex-wife and ex-girlfriend.

The actor was also charged in January with battery of an ex-girlfriend.
