Christian Bale and Thomas Dekker, you might want to watch your step in the coming months; the terrible year of John Connors continues. Edward Furlong, who played Connor in Terminator 2, was arrested early this morning at LAX for felony domestic violence after grabbing his girlfriend’s arm in an argument, leaving visible marks, TMZ reports. At press time, the 35-year-old actor remained in jail with bail set at $50,000. Earlier this year, Furlong, who has struggled with addiction to cocaine and heroin for years, claimed he was robbed by a man in L.A.’s Skid Row. In 2011, he was jailed for violating a restraining order that kept him away from his estranged wife.
And just to recap what’s happened to the other John Connors of the world. In May, Terminator 3′s Nick Stahl checked himself into rehab after an episode in which his wife reported him missing and he was spotted hanging around Skid Row too. He then went missing again, but eventually returned home and was attending AA meetings.
Lucky for Christian Bale (Terminator Salvation), the only trouble he’s had with the law lately was when Chinese security guards punched, shoved and threw rocks at him and a CNN crew as he attempted to visit a political dissident under house arrest. And by “lucky” we mean, “damn, that’s pretty f-ing scary.” So far, Thomas Dekker (The Sarah Connor Chronicles) has only one count of misdemeanor reckless driving on his record for hitting a cyclist (who was later found to be at fault) — and his TV shows keep getting canceled.
