Actor Edward Furlong assaulted his girlfriend and threatened to hurt her if she called police, according to Los Angeles County prosecutors.

The “Terminator 2”  and “American History X” actor had two pending misdemeanor battery cases against him related to incidents on Nov. 21 and Jan. 13, also including his girlfriend. He was also arrested at Los Angeles International Airport in October on suspicion of domestic violence.

In 2007, the actor was charged with public intoxication after being arrested at a Kentucky grocery store. Last year, Furlong was arrested on suspicion of violating a restraining order requiring him to stay away from his estranged wife.

Furlong is scheduled to appear in court July 1 for a preliminary hearing.
