Jennifer Aniston Gets Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The actress seeks protection from an "obsessed, mentally ill" man who may be trying to harm her

Jennifer Aniston is the latest celeb to fall victim to an alleged stalker. According to TMZ.com, the actress received a restraining order against a man who was arrested on July 15 for possibly attempting to harm Aniston.

Court documents say police found 24-year-old Jason Peyton "laying-in-wait in a location he believes she frequents with a sharp object, a bag, a roll of duct tape and written messages about [Aniston]."

The legal papers describe Peyton as "an obsessed, mentally ill and delusional stalker -- with a history of violence and criminal stalking -- who drove cross-country in his delusional 'mission' to locate and marry [Aniston], with whom he believes he is in a relationship."

The obsessed fan drove from Pennsylvania to California, for eight days, with "I Love You Jennifer Aniston" carved into his car, Aniston's lawyer claims.

Peyton, who has been institutionalized in the past, has been placed on 5150 psychiatric hold and has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards from the actress' home and place of work.
