Ed Furlong pleads not guilty to battery charge

Troubled Terminator 2 star, Edward Furlong, pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court on this week after being charged with the battery for the third time in a matter of months.

The actor will however remain behind bars until a $30,000 bail is posted.

The actor’s lawyer asked for the sum to be reduced, but it was denied.

Furlong was arrested last week for domestic violence after allegedly attacking his girlfriend.

It is the third time he has been slapped with a battery charge…he was also charged with the same offence twice at the end of last year.

The 35-year-old star was picked up by the police in LA in the early hours of Sunday morning, after yet another alleged violent incident.

A mug shot of the actor looking bleary-eyed emerged on Tuesday.

The actor is still in custody following the reported attack on his partner, in the wake of the two previous arrests.

The star allegedly had an outstanding warrant for his arrest from a previous charge when he was picked up.

Edward hit headlines just two months ago when it emerged that he had been arrested for domestic violence after a public spat with his girlfriend at Los Angeles’ LAX Airport on October 30.

The woman involved in the argument had visible marks on her arm and Edward’s bail was set at $50,000.

On November 21, the day before Thanksgiving, the actor was arrested for a second time in under a month, accused of assaulting the same girlfriend.

The American History X star has recently been banned from spending time alone with his six-year-old son Ethan, after his ex-wife Rachael Bella obtained a court order.

The young child tested positive for cocaine after spending time in Edward’s care earlier in the year, although it is still unclear how it got into his system.

Edward, who has undergone several stints in rehab, has been in and out of trouble with the law over the years.

The actor’s colourful personal life includes being sued by an ex-girlfriend, 14 years his senior, for ‘assault’, and ex-wife Rachael Bella filing for divorce before hitting him with a restraining order.
