Terminator 2 actor Edward Furlong has been arrested yet again for violating a restraining order and getting into an argument with his ex, TMZ reports.When police arrived at the West Hollywood home of his estranged wife, Rachael Kneeland, they found the 35-year-old actor hiding under a nearby stairwell, or as MSN phrased it, "cowering under a stairwell."

Furlong was taken into custody and is currently being held on $100,000 bail.

He's previously been arrested twice for, as TMZ puts it, "roughing up," Kneeland.

According to MSN, Furlong is scheduled to stand trial in June on a previous charge of domestic battery.

His bouts with the law haven't stopped him from acting. Although he hasn't seen the quality of roles he had in '90s flicks Terminator 2 and American History X, his recent credits include Assault on Wall Street, The Green Hornet and appearances on the TV series The Glades and Perception.

In August 2012, he claimed he was robbed while "asking for directions" in L.A.'s Skid Row.
