Jennifer Aniston has obtained a restraining order against a man who was arrested for lurking around her Hollywood Hills home last week while carrying a “sharp object”, according to online reports.

Court documents obtained by TMZ.com state that Jason Peyton was found “laying-in-wait” near her property on 15 July “with a sharp object, a bag, a roll of duct tape and written messages about (Aniston)”.
Peyton was placed on a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold following the arrest.

Aniston’s lawyer tells the website Peyton spent eight days trying to locate the actress before he was taken into custody. Upon his arrest, police found messages carved into the paint of his car reading, “I LOVE YOU JENNIFER ANISTON.”

The legal papers go on to claim: “Peyton is 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.”

Officers from Los Angeles Police Department’s Threat Management Unit is investigating the case.
According to the restraining order, Peyton must stay 100 yards away from Aniston’s home, places of work and vehicles.

Peyton must also steer clear of her employees, agents, managers and other reps.
