Ian Ziering, the actor who rose to fame with his role in the popular TV series “Beverly Hills, 90210”, was involved in a violent confrontation with a group of motorcyclists on the night of December 31, 2023.
According to a video obtained by TMZ, the incident occurred on Hollywood Boulevard, where Ziering was driving his car with his oldest daughter, Mia, as a passenger. The video shows that one of the bikers seemed to clip Ziering’s car, which prompted him to get out and punch the first person he saw.
However, his action backfired as he was soon surrounded by a dozen of the bikers, who were wearing helmets and leather jackets. Ziering tried to defend himself, but was outnumbered and overpowered by the attackers, who punched and kicked him repeatedly.
Ian Ziering managed to escape by running across the busy street, but two of the bikers followed him and continued to assault him. One of them pushed him against a parked car, while the other hit him in the head. A third biker, who appeared to be a woman, also joined the fray and tried to harm Ziering.
Ziering eventually ran away and reached the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where the bikers stopped chasing him and returned to their motorcycles. Ziering’s daughter, Mia, witnessed the whole ordeal and was visibly distraught, according to photos obtained by TMZ. Ziering comforted and consoled her after the brawl.
Ian Ziering has not commented on the incident, but has filed a police report as the victim. The motive of the attack is still unclear, but TMZ reported that it could be related to a road rage incident.
The actor, who is 59 years old, is best known for his role as Steve Sanders in the hit show “Beverly Hills, 90210”, which ran from 1990 to 2000. He also starred in the “Sharknado” film series and the DC series “Swamp Thing”.
