A woman accused of attacking Leonardo DiCaprio at a 2005 party in the Hollywood Hills was ordered by a judge Wednesday to stay at least 500 yards away from him.

6a00d8341c630a53ef0133f2d9011c970b-120wi Aretha Wilson is accused of attacking DiCaprio with a broken beer bottle outside the party, leaving him with a bruised and bloodied face.

Wilson, a Canadian citizen, was recently extradited to the United States to face charges. She did not enter a plea, and the arraignment was postponed until Aug. 11.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Hillery G. Merritt also raised Wilson's bail from $60,000 to $150,000. If Wilson posts bail, she must surrender her passport, Merritt said.
