Former Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering had some frightening moments in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve when he was attacked by a group of people riding motorized mini-bikes on Hollywood Blvd.
In a video obtained by TMZ, Ziering was surrounded by the bikers who reportedly had been weaving in and out of traffic and may have struck his car. Ziering is seen getting out of the vehicle, immediately surrounded by the bikers and a brawl breaks out with the bikers seen striking Ziering several times. He attempts to run away and cross to the other side of the street, but the bikers continued to beat on him.
According to the outlet, Ziering managed to get back to his car and drive away and was not seriously hurt.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to CW affiliate KTLA that officers responded to Hollywood Blvd and Highland Ave. around 3 p.m. on Sunday following “reports of a fight that broke out after the group of bikers were driving recklessly.”
Ziering is known for his role as Steve Sanders on Beverly Hills, 90210 and as Fin Shepard in the Sharknado TV movies. He most recently guest-starred in a voice role on Clone High.
