A man and a woman were arrested Tuesday in connection with a New Year’s Eve assault on “Beverly Hills, 90210” actor Ian Ziering by a group of people on minibikes in Hollywood.


Search warrants were executed at two Los Angeles-area residences Tuesday, leading to the arrests of 20-year-old Jacob Esteban Hernandez and 40-year-old Angie Teresa Guizar, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement.


The assault and car vandalism altercation, which the LAPD said involved at least four members of a “minibike gang,” was reported at about 3 p.m. Dec. 31 in the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue. In an Instagram post, the “90210” and “Sharknado” star said he was stuck in traffic with one of his two young daughters in his car when the minibikers “approached aggressively.”


“In an attempt to assess any damage I exited my car,” Ziering wrote. “This action, unfortunately, escalated into a physical altercation, which I navigated to protect myself.”
