'Green Hornet' Star -- Thrown In Jail

1/11/2011 7:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Edward Furlong is currently in jail, after a judge ruled he violated a domestic restraining order.

Edward Furlong Arrested
Furlong -- who starred in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and the new "The Green Hornet" flick -- was handcuffed in court at around 11:30 AM and taken to jail.

Here's what went down ... Furlong's estranged wife, Rachael Kneeland, got a restraining order against Furlong, which he violated.  The L.A. City Attorney filed criminal charges and in November Furlong pled no contest to the violation.  He was placed on probation.

Furlong was in court today for a progress hearing.  During the hearing, the City Attorney told the judge Furlong had violated the restraining order last month by coming within 50 yards of Kneeland.  The restraining order requires him to stay 100 yards from her.

The judge ruled Furlong had violated his probation and the actor was cuffed and taken into custody.

He's being held on $75,000 bail.

UPDATE: Furlong was released just over an hour ago after posting bail.

Sounds like a bogus charge but hey...does anyone really know what this guy has done? No...but that woman Kneeland might.

The guy has seemed to have a few problems before this so...maybe the 100 yards is a good idea

To the morons slagging Furlong's acting ability... watch "American History X," and "Little Odessa," then come back and apologize.

You should look him up on imdb b/c you know not of what you speak. He's steadily acted since T2 and has several movies in post-production being released in 2011. I don't think he's had a majour role like T2 or American History X, but if you followed the industry (as I do), you'd know he's had a steady work/income and as long as he keeps actiong there's a vchance for another big role.

Just goes to show it doesn't matter what you look like, with a good makeup artist, you can still be an actor. Ahh, the land of opportunity.

That's how it should work when you violate probation, (Lohan fans take note).

Thought this guy was dead year ago. Turns out, I was thinking Brad Renfro. Six of one ... half-dozen of the other. Whoopsie.
