Edward Furlong, Mug Shot

Los Angeles Sheriff Department

Edward Furlong is behind bars.

The Terminator 2: Judgment Day star was jailed in Van Nuys., Calif., today after a judge ordered he be locked up for violating his girlfriend's restraining order—an offense he supposedly committed by getting arrested last month following what police called a "boyfriend/girlfriend disturbance" at an L.A. residence.

He's facing a misdemeanor battery charge from the January bust. Meanwhile, the order of protection had been in place since he was charged with domestic violence for allegedly grabbing the same girlfriend's arm at LAX in October. 

According to today's arrest sheet, he was booked at 12:11 p.m. and bail was set at $250,000.

TMZ reports, meanwhile, that Furlong has been ordered to stay behind bars until a probation-violation hearing on March 4.

The actor was placed on three years' probation in November 2010 for violating a restraining order put in place by his then-wife, Rachael Kneeland. He ended up on thin ice when his probation was revoked in December because of the airport bust, with a judge saying he could remain free only if he behaved himself.
