Terminator star Furlong jailed

Actor Edward Furlong has been sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation in a 2010 case.

The 'Terminator 2' star was accused of disobeying the terms of his sentence in a domestic violence case in which he was convicted of violating a restraining order.

The 35-year-old actor has been the subject of restraining orders filed by both his ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend.

Superior Court Judge Dennis Mulcahy directed officials not to release the actor early or give him credit for time served, but jail records showed yesterday that he may be released in late May.
