Two suspects have been arrested in connection with a New Year's Eve street brawl that involved "Beverly Hills 90210" star Ian Ziering, police said.

Ziering, 60, was driving with his daughter on Hollywood Boulevard on Dec. 31, 2023 at around 3 p.m. when a crowd of motorized bikes weaving through traffic swarmed his vehicle.

In a video originally posted by TMZ, it's unclear whether a collision took place, but something prompted Ziering to get out of his vehicle and punch one of the bikers.

A violent brawl broke out as other bikers swarmed the "Sharknado" actor, throwing punches left and right. Ziering made a run for the sidewalk as one of the bikers tried to keep hold of him and another tried to trip him.

Bystanders could be seen filming the encounter from the sidewalk. Ziering was eventually able to get away, and later returned to his car and drove away.

The Los Angeles Police Department said it used multiple videos of the brawl that were captured by witnesses or posted on social media, along with information uncovered during their investigation, to help them identify two suspects. Warrants were executed at two residences on May 21 at around 6 a.m., and both suspects were taken into custody.

Jacob Esteban Hernandez, 20, was arrested on a charge of felony vandalism, and his bail was set at $50,000. Angie Teresa Guizar, 40, was arrested on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, and her bail was set at $30,000.

Police said the case is being sent to the district attorney's office, which will decide what charges to file.


Ziering wrote about the "alarming incident" on Instagram the day after it happened.

"Yesterday, I experienced an alarming incident involving a group of individuals on mini bikes. While stuck in traffic, my car was approached aggressively by one of these riders leading to an unsettling confrontation. In an attempt to assess any damage I exited my car. This action, unfortunately, escalated into a physical altercation, which I navigated to protect myself," Ziering wrote.

"I am relieved to report that my daughter and I are both completely unscathed, but the incident has left me deeply concerned about the growing boldness of such groups who disrupt public safety and peace," he wrote.

Ziering said the altercation was emblematic of "a larger issue of hooliganism on our streets and the need for effective law enforcement responses."
