Terminator 2 star Edward Furlong was in Los Angeles Superior Court Monday pleading no contest to domestic violence. 

TMZ reports the actor got six other charges dismissed in a plea deal for assaulting his ex-girlfriend. Furlong was arrested in May when he violated a protective order she had against him and attacked her. Charges included domestic violence and vandalism (he destroyed her laptop).

On Monday, a court commissioner put Furlong on five years of probation, and ordered him to serve 90 days in a drug treatment program, and undergo a year of domestic violence counseling, reports E! News. He was also given credit for 61 days served, so he won't have to do any further jail time.

Furlong was last in jail on June 10. In March, he was sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation in a 2010 case for violating a similar restraining order.
