Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has obtained a temporary restraining order against ex-boyfriend Matt Prokop, according to a report from

Sarah claims that Matt was both physically and verbally abusive during their relationship, with legal docs revealing an incident in May alleging that Matt pinned her against a car and choked her while calling her "c**t, c**t, c**t."

Sarah explained in the docs: "His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life."

Julie Bowen, who plays Sarah's mom on Modern Family, reportedly witnessed some of the abuse and Sarah sought her help to "peacefully end the relationship."

The couple split last month, but Sarah noted that he "relentlessly bombarded me with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails including his own suicide threats" after the breakup.

He reportedly went to a rehab treatment program in August and was released on September 21. The facility's director advised Sarah to get the restraining order.

Very scary.
