"Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland just got a temporary restraining order against ex-boyfriend Matthew Prokop, she claimed that he allegedly choked her, and allegedly threatened her life.
When asked for comment, Sarah's lawyer, Lee A. Sherman, E! News confirms, On September 19, 2014, Ms. Hyland obtained a Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order against Matthew Prokop and a hearing has been set for Oct. 10, 2014.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Sarah Hyland alleges that Matthew Prokop both allegedly physically and verbally attacked her in the latter 4 years of their relationship.
She also claims that Matthew pinned Hyland against a car during an argument about her outfit back in May and unleashed hell ... calling her "c**t, c**t, c**t" and choking her.
She says in the docs, "His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life."
Sarah Hyland says she suffered injuries to her voice -- and had a "very sore throat following this event."
In the docs, Sarah Hyland says she knew she was in an abusive relationship -- and asked her TV mom Julie Bowen to come to her house to help "peacefully end the relationship."
Sarah Hyland says she had purchased a plane ticket to send Matthew back to his home in Texas -- but when Matthew arrived to the home and saw Julie (along with others), he freaked out ... "ran outside into the backyard and began screaming."
Sarah says Matthew threw a lighter at her -- and that's when Julie stepped in and told Sarah to get out of the house because she wasn't safe around Matthew Prokop.
In the docs, Sarah Hyland says Matthew also threatened to set one of her homes on fire -- and threatened that she would never see her dog again.
After Sarah broke up with Matthew she claims he "relentlessly bombarded me with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails including his own suicide threats."
Sarah says Matthew entered a rehab facility in August -- but he got out on Sept. 21st ... and claims the director of the facility contacted her and told her it would be in her best interest to get a restraining order against him due to his mental state and attitude against her.
Sarah Hyland took his advice -- and an L.A. judge granted a temporary restraining order ... requiring Matthew Prokop to stay at least 100 yards away from Sarah and her dog at all times.
