Jennifer Aniston should be able to sleep a little better tonight. Jason Peyton, the man who has been stalking her, has been captured and she has been granted a temporary restraining order against him.
Good thing, because this guy sounds seriously scary and dangerous. After traveling across the country with an intent to marry the actress, he was arrested July 15 after being found "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].'"
He also carved "I LOVE YOU JENNIFER ANISTON" into the side of his car.
"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," police documents state.
The 24-year-old, who has been known to stalk others in the past and believes he's related to a host of celebrities including Oprah Winfrey and Jay-Z, is currently on psychiatric hold. The temporary restraining order requires him to keep at least 100 yards away from her and those who work with her, like her manager.
"Mr. Peyton's ongoing, ever-increasing, aggressive, and harassing conduct are extremely distressing. I fear for my personal safety and that of those around me," Aniston stated in a court declaration.
A court hearing has been set for August 9.
I hope they keep him locked up for a long time. A restraining order doesn't seem like enough protection from someone who is clearly and so seriously mentally ill.
Have you ever been the victim of stalking?
