Two Individuals Arrested After New Year’s Eve Fight with Actor Ian Ziering


HOLLYWOOD (KTLA) — Authorities announced Tuesday that two individuals have been arrested in connection with a New Year’s Eve brawl on Hollywood Boulevard that involved actor Ian Ziering, renowned for his role in “Beverly Hills 90210.”

The altercation occurred around 3 p.m. near Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue following a dispute between Ziering and a member of a mini-bike gang over alleged damage to the actor’s vehicle.

Significant portions of the chaotic brawl were captured on cellphones, with video footage of the incident first appearing on TMZ involving the “Sharknado” star.

The video shows Ziering confronting and pushing one of the mini-bike gang members who was blocking his car, before three to four other bikers joined in, with one throwing a punch that appeared to strike the actor in the face.

“One of the mini-bike riders is captured swinging an object at the victim, nearly striking him,” the Los Angeles Police Department noted in a news release. “After the assault, the mini-bike riders vandalized the motorist’s vehicle while his 10-year-old child remained in the front seat.”

Another video shows Ziering comforting his daughter on the street as the group eventually retreats.

Police added that neither Ziering nor his daughter were injured during the incident.

On Jan. 1, the now 60-year-old actor addressed the incident on social media.

“While stuck in traffic, my car was approached aggressively by one of these riders leading to an unsettling confrontation,” Ziering posted to Instagram. He described the incident as “hooliganism” and called for “effective law enforcement” to address what he believes is a broader issue.

“We must address the underlying issues that lead to such disruptive behavior and ensure that our streets are safe for everyone. I urge city officials and law enforcement to take decisive action against such lawlessness and provide the necessary resources to prevent future occurrences,” Ziering stated.

During their investigation, detectives from LAPD’s Hollywood Division used video and witness information to identify two suspects — 20-year-old Rosemead resident Jacob Esteban Hernandez and 40-year-old Los Angeles resident Angie Teresa Guizar.

Both were taken into custody on May 21 at around 6 a.m. after officers from the LAPD’s Metro Division served warrants at two locations.

Hernandez was booked for felony vandalism, with bail set at $50,000. Guizar was booked on assault with a deadly weapon, with bail set at $30,000.

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to contact LAPD Detective Douglas Hall at 213-927-2971. To remain anonymous, tips can be left online with the L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers or by calling 800-222-8477.
