Hyland files a temporary restraining order against her ex-boyfriend Matt Prokop, according to court documents. Hyland says her 24-year-old ex, whom she dated for five years before they split in August, choked her, pushed her and threatened her life, and her “Modern Family” co-star Julie Bowen was reportedly witness to the abuse. Hyland:
His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life.
