Violated a protective order...
TMZ reports that Edward Furlong has been put back in jail after violating a protective order that ordered him not to contact his estranged wife Rachael Kneeland.
It's unknown when or how he violated the order, but he had a hearing today and the judge remanded him into custody. The judge accused him of not taking the order seriously and told him he belongs in a lockdown treatment facility for substance abuse.
Furlong was put on three years probation in 2010 after pleading no contest to violating another protective order from Kneeland. He was required to obey for the entirety of his probation.
He has been arrested twice in the last four months for beating up his current girlfriend. He will remain in jail until a formal probation violation hearing on March 4.
