BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — “Beverly Hills, 90210” actor Ian Ziering has revealed that he and his 12-year-old daughter were the victims of a violent attack by a group of bikers on New Year’s Eve. In a post on Instagram, the 59-year-old actor described the incident as “alarming” and “unsettling” and expressed concern about the growing boldness of such groups disrupting public safety and peace.
In the wake of the traumatizing event, Ziering called for immediate action from law enforcement, emphasizing the need for effective responses to such behavior. He described the incident as a larger issue of hooliganism on the streets and condemned the groups engaging in such behavior, causing fear and chaos. He called the response from authorities insufficient, urging city officials and law enforcement to take decisive action and provide the necessary resources to prevent future occurrences.
The actor’s plea for action comes after a video obtained by TMZ showed Ziering’s vehicle surrounded by multiple riders on mini-motorized bikes on Hollywood Boulevard before the actor got out of his car and was seen swinging at one of the bikers. Other bikers were seen surrounding Ziering as they engaged in a physical confrontation with him.
In response to the incident, Ziering emphasized the importance of standing up against intimidation and misconduct, as well as the need for personal and community safety. He concluded his post by thanking his loved ones and fans during the “challenging moment” and wished his followers a happy new year.
The actor’s ordeal ended with him running across a busy street and being pursued by the bikers before eventually getting away on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Fox News Digital reached out to the Los Angeles Police Department and reps for Ziering but has not yet heard back.
Ziering’s call for action underscores the need for a stronger response to public safety concerns and the increasing boldness of disruptive groups, urging authorities to take concrete steps to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.
