Sarah Hyland was granted a permanent restraining order on Monday against her ex-boyfriend Matt Prokop.

According to the judge’s order, Prokop must stay 100 yards away from Hyland, her home, and the “Modern Family” set, and he can’t own or possess a gun — or he will go to jail.

He’s also not allowed to go anywhere near her dog Barkley Bixby.

As Gossip Cop reported, Hyland obtained a temporary order last month against Prokop after she alleged he choked her and abused her verbally and physically for the last four years of their relationship.

In one incident last May, according to Hyland, Prokop pinned her against a car by her throat and called her a “c*nt.”

She said in her initial court papers, “His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life.”
