WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Actor Edward Furlong has been charged with misdemeanor battery on an ex-girlfriend during an altercation on Sunday morning.

The actor was arrested in West Hollywood, Calif., on suspicion of battery and for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant on another domestic violence battery case involving the same woman.

Furlong's attorney, Brian Michaels, says he is still gathering information about the arrest.

The 35-year-old actor pleaded not guilty in the new case Tuesday and is due back in court on Jan. 25.

He has also been involved in a custody dispute with his ex-wife and faces a probation violation hearing on Feb. 15 for contempt of court in a Los Angeles case.

Furlong was charged in the domestic violence case in December but failed to appear at a court hearing.
