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.

Looks to me like he was trying to cop(score) and saw the police and decided to make up a story to make it look like he had a reason to be there.

I live here in LA. Even if you're in a big hurry, you avoid driving through that section called Skid Row, you drive the 2 extra blocks "AROUND" to get to where you need to go. Never drive through Skid Row. If he was IN Skid Row, he was there up to no good. End of story.

Big deal he just asked a guy for directions and Edward Furlong is awesome. He might still be famous but he doesn't get the big box office movies like he used to.

Being famous doesn't mean he has to hang out in all the rich areas of LA.
