The Shock Moment Ian Ziering Is ATTACKED By Bikers After Traffic Altercation: 90210 Star Is Punched By Group On Hollywood Boulevard Before Fleeing To Safety… As LAPD Continue To Probe Violent Incident

Ian Ziering was filmed being punched and kicked by a group of mini-bike riders in Los Angeles on Sunday in a shock traffic altercation.

In video from the shock incident, The Beverly Hills, 90210 actor, 59, was seen clashing with one mini-bike rider on Hollywood Boulevard – approaching them and kicking them before striking them on the head.

Ziering was then attacked by the rider who attempted to strike him, before the actor pushed the rider to the ground.

Ziering was surrounded by other bikers from the group – who wore helmets in the exchange – and was seen being punched in the head as he attempted to fend off multiple attacks.

He ran across the road in an attempt to flee to safety before he was caught by the riders and punched again.

The star was seen defending himself by kicking the bikers who grabbed onto his arm and pulled him back into the street before striking him.

Ziering then ran to the safety of the street.

The incident involving Ziering, who played the role of Steve Sanders on the Fox series from 1990 to 2000, took place on Hollywood Boulevard with the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop visible in the background. 

While dozens of onlookers were gathered at the popular spot on New Year’s Eve, no one appeared to intervene on Ziering’s behalf in the incident.

A source told DailyMail.com that Ziering is ‘doing okay’ after the incident.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was arrested in connection with the incident as of Sunday evening, TMZ reported, noting that ‘an official report’ lists the Newark, New Jersey-born actor ‘as the victim’ in the incident.

Police told the outlet they are probing the incident and communicating with the people involved. 

Sources told the outlet that Ziering’s ‘vehicle … may have been hit’ prior to the conflict caught on camera in the incident.

Ziering was able to get back into his vehicle and depart the scene, sources told the outlet, while the group of mini-bikers also abruptly left the scene after the violent incident.

The incident marked the final chapter in what’s been a challenging year for members of the Beverly Hills, 90210 cast.

Shannen Doherty had to undergo a surgical procedure to remove a tumor from her head taken on January 16, 2023, going public with the news in her long-running health battle in June. (Doherty was initially diagnosed in 2015 with breast cancer and in February 2020, said she had been diagnosed with stage four breast cancer.)

Also in January, Doherty and ex-husband Kurt Iswarienko separated, and she revealed they were divorcing in April amid ‘irreconcilable differences.’

Doherty on her podcast earlier this month said that she was looking forward to ending a ‘turbulent’ year filled with ‘some massive health struggles, some massive personal struggles’ and ‘a lot of heartbreak and fear.’

Ziering  told People earlier this month that Doherty ‘has always been a fighter,’ and is ‘really an incredible woman.’

He said of her health battle: ‘It’s not over. She’s got a long road in front of her. She’s so courageous and strong, and stands as a role model to those that are facing similar adversities.’

In addition, his costar Tori Spelling has made headlines over the past 12 months with a series of financial problems, insecure living conditions, physical illness and her separation from estranged husband Dean McDermott.
