Ian Ziering Speaks Out on Terrifying Bike Assault: Defending Myself was Vital

Ian Ziering confirmed he's 'completely unscathed' but 'deeply concerned' after he was attacked by a group of bikers on New Year's Eve.
Ian Ziering, 59, broke his silence after he was involved in an “unsettling” fight with several bikers on December 31. The Beverly Hills, 90210 actor took to his Instagram two days after the incident that occurred on Hollywood Boulevard and posted a lengthy message informing his fans what had happened.
“Yesterday, I experienced an alarming incident involving a group of individuals on mini bikes,” Ian wrote. “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.”

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.
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. 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.
I have always been an advocate for standing up against intimidation and misconduct, and this incident reinforces my belief in the importance of personal and community safety. We must address the underlying issues that lead to such disruptive behavior and ensure that our streets are safe for everyone. I urge city officials and law enforcement to take decisive action against such lawlessness and provide the necessary resources to prevent future occurrences.
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.

On January 1, TMZ released a video of Ian getting into a brawl with the bikers after they seemingly clipped his car, which sparked the confrontation. The Sharknado star tried fending off the bikers who all wore helmets and piled on him during the violent attack.
Ian managed to break free and run to his daughter, who was standing on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the video showed. TMZ reported that police were investigating after Ian filed a police report, claiming himself as the victim.
