‘Sharknado’ Star Ian Ziering Speaks Out After Being Attacked By “Biker Gang” On The Streets Of LA

If you don’t live in Los Angeles or haven’t visited in a while, you might be surprised to learn that at times, the streets are taken over by a weird group of so-called “bikers.”

They zip through city streets on electric mini bikes, four wheelers and dirt bikes. They do not follow road rules and expect everyone to watch out for them. It’s truly a weird phenomenon.

And this past weekend, ‘Sharknado‘ star Ian Ziering had a wild run-in with the gang of bikers. In a video that was released by TMZ, you can see the 59-year-old actor getting into a brawl with the bikers on a street in Los Angeles. The former ‘Beverly Hills, 90210‘ star addressed the incident on his Instagram account.

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. 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.

In one of the photos, you can see Ian consoling his 12-year-old daughter, who was in the car when all this was going down just outside the vehicle.

On the police report, he was listed as the victim, most likely because it was like 15 against 1. But you can see in the clip that he did throw a punch. It’s the first punch seen in the video, but we don’t know what happened before the camera started rolling.

No arrests have been made at this time, but Ian is hopeful something gets done because he fears for the safety of his children.

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