Jennifer Aniston gets a restraining order against stalker suspect

Jennifer Aniston has been granted a restraining order against a stalker suspect who'd driven cross-country to be with her in a car that had messages including "I love Jennifer Aniston" and "I love you Jennifer Aniston" carved into its hood and driver's side door. 

Unable to locate the actress' home address, Jason R. Peyton was arrested July 15 on Sunset Boulevard hanging out and looking for her near businesses he believes she frequents. He was placed on a psychiatric hold, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

The restraining order, granted Tuesday, was based on evidence of stalking and a credible threat of violence. Court papers filed describe Peyton as "a diagnosed delusional and paranoid schizophrenic, with a history of violence and criminal harassment and stalking, including an apparent planned abduction of a former stalking victim."

He was, the documents said, found "laying-in-wait" for Aniston in possession of ...

... a sharp object, a roll of duct tape and written messages to the actress -- including baby names for the child he hoped they'd have together. He allegedly believes he's been secretly mentally communicating with her for two years.

Peyton's parents reported him missing after he took off from his Pennsylvania around June 25, leaving a note that said he was going to California; he called his mother while he was on the road, and she contacted L.A. police after he told her he was "on a mission to go to Jennifer Aniston" and that she would "hear about it on the news." According to court papers, he has attempted suicide at least four times; has a history of assaulting women, including his own mother, when he doesn't get what he wants; and has been institutionalized repeatedly.

It's not the first time Aniston has found herself in scary stalker circumstances -- a homeless man jumped her fence and entered her home in August 2005, fortunately while she was away on location.

baby names for the child he hoped they'd have together ?!?!?!
secretly mentally communicating with her for two years ?!?!?!

Wow That's one sick puppy..... LMAO

Part of me feels sorry for Jennifer having to put up with idiots like this not to mention the hassle she gets from the press.

On the other hand...She got into this business wanting to be famous and popular so I guess you really have to be careful what you wish for and take the good with the bad.

Good luck Jennifer and watch out for the crazies

Thanks for the good reputation you give to the numerous people suffering schizophrenia! saying "a stalker": isn't it enough?

@cris: no, that one word is not enough, because he's not the average stalker. The details are beyond the usual stalker's obsession, and they would inevitably lead readers to speculate about what he might be suffering. That armchair speculation would be hurtful to the mentally ill in general, much more so than the simple truthful revelation that this man is a paranoid schizophrenic.

The diagnosis takes a lot of the joke out of the story. Think of Letterman's stalker, who was a joke for years until her suicide and the revelation that she was a schizophrenic. Jokes about the weirdo who claimed to be his wife are one thing; nobody wanted to crack on a genuinely ill woman.

Jennifer I hope your are fine, Looking at all the tv crazy stalkers you need to be careful, Some of these sikos are no joke so take this seriously . It is one thing to have a fan but he went pass that stage with you, so you better watch out

Ms. Aniston, the next time this bozo tries to get next to you, smile at him very sweetly....and then cheap-shot him right in the balls.
