Onetime child star Edward Furlong has found himself in trouble with the law yet again. The actor was arrested early Sunday morning in West Hollywood for domestic battery and for an existing warrant for felony domestic violence.Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department's West Hollywood Station were sent to the 1400 block of Laurel Avenue at about 5:45 a.m. Sunday in response to a call regarding a domestic disturbance, according to the LASD.

Details regarding the specifics of Sunday's arrest and the precipitating incident have not been made available.

Furlong was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport back in late October following an alleged physical dispute with his girlfriend. Earlier in 2012, the young star of "Terminator 2" was involved in a bizarre incident that found him claiming he was robbed while "asking for directions" on L.A.'s Skid Row. In 2011, Furlong was arrested in courtwhile there to discuss a restraining order on him taken out by his estranged wife, Rachael Kneeland.

Currently Furlong is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail--tallied from the current arrest and the warrant--and is due to be arraigned today.
