‘90210’ Star Ian Ziering Viciously Attacked by Bikers in Los Angeles

Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering managed to fight off a bunch of bikers who attacked him on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

The attack took place on Sunday, New Year’s Eve. According to a video a passer-by took of the incident, bikers were weaving in and out in the streets. They seemed to interfere with Ziering’s car, too.

Once he jumped out, the face-covered bikers pounced on Ziering. It appeared that he had two or three of them grabbing and hitting him. In the video, it shows Ziering running across the street but with the bikers hanging on. The attack on him might have lasted 90 seconds to two minutes.

Ziering finally shook the bikers off of him on the other side of the street. According to a report, Ziering got back into his car and drove away. The bikers also got back on their bikes and reportedly left the scene.

Ian Ziering Incident Under Investigation

According to TMZ, law enforcement officials have been notified about the situation. Reportedly, an official report on the incident has been taken. Ziering reportedly has been listed as the victim. No arrests have been made as the investigation is ongoing at this time.

A later report, also from TMZ, indicates that Ziering rushed across Hollywood Boulevard to his crying daughter Mia. Ziering was seen wrapping his arms around her, making sure that she was not hurt. Thankfully, both Ian and Mia were not hurt or injured in the events. Police have not been able to identify any of the bikers who ganged up on Ziering.

It also is not clear if one of the bikers might have clipped Ziering’s car and damaged it. From those on the scene, no concrete confirmation was available at this time.

Most people know Ziering from his role as Steve Sanders on 90210. But a whole new generation of fans also know him from the Sharknado movies as Fin Shepard. Ziering also has been a producer and director in his career. He’s been married twice and has two children.

Actor Has Been Involved In Different Projects

Ziering has been keeping himself in the public eye for the past few years.

Back in 2007, he competed on Dancing with the Stars and his partner was Cheryl Burke. Burke had won the two previous competitions with Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith as her partners. With Ziering, they reached the semifinals. But the couple was eliminated on the results show. In a later interview, Burke did not have flattering comments about working with Ziering. But she did apologize for making them in another interview.

He also has appearances on Celebrity Apprentice and Celebrity Family Feud to his credit. Turning back the clock a little bit, Ziering’s first two credited acting appearances reportedly were on two soap operas, The Doctors and Guiding Light.

Last year, Ziering had a voiceover role on the Canadian show titled Clone High.

He was part of the ensemble from 90210 to receive the Outstanding Young Ensemble Cast in a Television Series. That was at the Young Artist Awards for 1991 and 1992. In 1993, the same crew received the Favorite Young Ensemble Cast in a Television Series honor.
