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.

Damn... Furlong is/was one of my favorite actors. He was amazing in American History X . He needs to get help because he is obviously back on drugs.

There's only 1 reason to be there, and it AIN'T to ask directions. It's really sad that after being in one of the coolest movies ever, he ends up like every other washed up, drugged-out former child star. I hope he gets his act together before he ends up another statistic.

TMZ insinuating he was trying to buy drugs????What TMZ failed to mention is there is another area of skid row and there are many art galleries in the area. The area has an Art Walk which attracts many visitors. There are many residential lofts in the area (affluent residents). TMZ failed to show those pictures. Yes there is an area with bums, but there is another area during the daylight hours. If you look at the picture, Furlong was talking to the office during daylight hours in an area away from the wiki pic TMZ choose to show the bums.

TMZ wants to ruin reputations just to sensationalize a story. Sometimes TMZ is so exasperating.

he must be very financially ruined if he needs to go to Skid row to buy drugs. Now without his wallet the situation is even worse. He'll end up stealing wallets at skid row to buy his stuff.

Take a closer look at the close up shot. It's a ****TY job but if you look at his pants, those things are ratty and dirty, you can see it. Yeah, he was looking for directions to the nearest flophouse to get a nap in the stairwell.

Directions to the nearest street pharmacist. Guess paparazzi should start hanging around skid row more often. Never know who you might see next.

Hey Eddie, you ever hear of gang violence? Stupid to wear a red shirt in the hood. But you're a pu$$y to give up your wallet without a fight!! Seriously, get off the drugs and rebuild your life before something REALLY happens to you.
