LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors say “Green Hornet” and “Terminator 2″ star Eddie Furlong has been arrested in Los Angeles for violating a court order to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife.

City attorney’s office spokesman Frank Mateljan says the 33-year-old actor was in court Tuesday for a hearing on the three-year restraining order obtained by Rachael Kneeland when the judge ordered his arrest. He was released on $75,000 about three hours later.

People magazine was first to report the arrest, which came a day after the premiere of “Green Hornet.” The movie is in theaters Friday.

Kneeland and Furlong, the parents of a 4-year-old son, are involved in divorce proceedings.

Prosecutors say Furlong pleaded no contest in November to violating the court’s order and a progress hearing Tuesday determined he violated probation terms several weeks later.
