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.

Blaming the victim is a new low for TMZ. He has a right to be there and ask for directions. People don't have the right to rob you!

He was asking for directions...he was asking where he could find some heroin. Hope he gets healthy.

I'm sure he's been in LA long enough to not need directions. BS alert.

A former co-worker's cop husband said the "asking for directions" line is standard amongst drug addicts/dealers and prostitutes. Basically, people up to no good, coming up with a lame line.

So at least TWO patrol cars were tied up taking care of this loser Furlong.

.

For the couple of idiots sticking up for Furlong we can only hope that you or your family members were not in need of Police service during the time they were hand holding drug addict Furlong.

.

Its obvious that this loser Furlong has hit bottom, problem is he likes it there.

it's skid row the same place william and kate went to visit when they popped over to america for a visit. i swear i don't remember the pictures looking like this. i am sure william and kate would have understood. didn't william and kate spend a nite on skid row in london. so i don't see what's wrong with the pictures and place if it is good enough for them well it should be good enough for us.
