Edward Furlong

I WAS ROBBED

On Skid Row

8/23/2012 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Edward Furlong was ROBBED on the streets of LA this morning.Troubled "Terminator" star Edward Furlong -- not to be confused with troubled "Terminator" star Nick Stahl -- claims he was ROBBED on the streets of L.A. this morning ... but truth is ... he was asking for trouble.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Furlong flagged an officer making the rounds in Skid Row -- one of the most drug-infested area in L.A. -- and claimed he had asked a man for directions ... and the man aggressively demanded his wallet.

Not wanting trouble, Furlong says he obliged ... and the dude took off. No weapons were used.

But here's the thing ... walking around asking for directions in Skid Row -- which contains one of the largest homeless populations in the U.S. and is renowned for its drug dealing -- isn't the brightest idea. Especially at odd hours during the day.

We're told Furlong filed an incident report with the police, and a robbery investigation is currently underway.

Another washed up child star destroying his life with drugs. I guess that older woman he was living with got tired of having another child in the house.

Furlong "claimed he had asked a man for directions.."

Is 'Directions' the name of some new street narcotic?

Seems believable to me. I get lost in my hometown too and ask people of less than reputable character for help.

Yeah and Charlie Sheen's exwife was also looking for directions when she was caught in the seedy side of Hawaii that time.

this is the goofiest story I have heard for a while. Isn't he a notorious drug addict??? So he goes to skid row, where other addicts hang out, and asks for directions???? HUH. I must be missing something here. Isn't he from LA, or has lived there for a while. And who asks a homeless person in Skid Row for directions. It's not like they are actually mobile or anythign.
Here's the thing. He was there for drugs and the cops show up. So he blames the closest homeless guy for robbing him when he was there buying drugs and didn't want to get busted and get his probation violated.
