Sarah Hyland Granted THREE-YEAR Restraining Order From Matthew Prokop

by at .

Modern Family's Sarah Hyland has been granted a three year restraining order from her allegedly abusive and unstable former boyfriend, Matthew Prokop.

According to L.A. County Superior Court, Hyland has been granted all the protections she requested, and Matt Prokop must stay 100 yards from her.

That includes her house, her dog, and her workplace on the ABC sitcom.

Prokop is also not allowed to own a gun, and not permitted to attack or threaten to harm her dog in any way. Yes, that part is scarily a real stipulation.

Sarah Hyland got a restraining order from her boyfriend of five years last month after claiming that Prokop was abusive throughout their relationship.

Friends say Hyland, who plays oldest daughter Haley Dunphy on the Emmy-winning comedy series, has been through hell as a result of his torment.

Among other things, she claims that Prokop verbally abused her and once choked her with a "grip so tight that [she] could not breathe or speak."

Hyland also claimed that after calling off their relationship, he lost it.

Prokop "relentlessly bombarded [her] with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voicemails including his own suicide threats."

He allegedly said he'd burn her house down and harm her dog.

Court docs also noted Prokop's recent stint in rehab - now over - and said the facility even suggested Hyland get a restraining order due to his mental state.

Sarah Hyland's lawyer declined to comment further on the case, but basically said all there is to say by noting "the documents filed speak for themselves."
