Actor Ian Ziering breaks silence after 'alarming' New Year's Eve street brawl with motorbike gang on Hollywood Blvd

Disturbing footage has emerged of a motorbike gang viciously attacking actor Ian Ziering on the streets of LA on New Year's Eve.   

In a video obtained by TMZ, the vehicle Ziering is in is surrounded by a group of about 10 people on mini-bikes on Hollywood Boulevard.  

Ziering, who is known for his role in Beverly Hills, 90210, gets out of his vehicle and pushes two of the bikers before others in the group circle back and confront the actor.   

He is then attacked by four of the bikers who are throwing punches and grabbing him.   

One of the bikers throws a vicious punch to his head before the actor tries to flee across Hollywood Blvd with one person holding onto him by his shirt.   

He is then pushed into a parked vehicle and continuously attacked by the bikers as he tries to defend himself.   

The video ends by showing Ziering finally escaping from the gang of riders.  

A separate video published by TMZ shows Ziering consoling his visibly upset 12-year-old daughter, Mia, who was reportedly distressed by the fight involving her father.   

Following the attack, Ziering took to Instagram on Tuesday afternoon (NZ time) to confirm he and his daughter are "completely unscathed" before adding the incident he described as "alarming" has left him "deeply concerned about the growing boldness of such groups who disrupt public safety and peace".  

He said the attack started when he was stuck in traffic and his car was approached "aggressively" by one of the riders leading to an unsettling confrontation.  

Ziering said the reason he got out of his car was to assess if there was any damage to his vehicle before the fight broke out where he tried to "protect himself".   

"This situation highlights a larger issue of hooliganism on our streets and the need for effective law enforcement responses to such behavior," he wrote on Instagram.   

"As a citizen and a parent, I find it unacceptable that groups can freely engage in this kind of behavior, causing fear and chaos, while the response from authorities seems insufficient." 

The actor said he's always been an advocate for standing up against intimidation and misconduct and this incident reinforces that.   

"I am thankful for the support of my family, friends and fans during this time. It’s in challenging moments like these that the strength and unity of our community are most vital.  

"Happy new year."  

The LA Police Department confirmed officers responded to a fight on Hollywood Blvd and Highland Ave at about 3pm on Sunday (local time) following "reports of a fight that broke out" after the group of bikers were "driving recklessly".
