Jennifer Aniston restrains stalker

A court commissioner has granted Jennifer Aniston a restraining order against a man authorities say travelled cross country to try to meet the actress.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner David A. Cowan on Monday ordered Jason R Peyton to stay away from the actress and refrain from contacting her for three years.

The actress first obtained a temporary restraining order against Peyton on July 20 after police detained him. He remains on a month-long psychiatric hold.

Court filings claim police intervened after Peyton repeatedly showed up to Los Angeles-area locales searching for the Friends star.

The filings say Peyton was found with duct tape, a sharp object and love letters addressed to Aniston. He has not been arrested or charged in connection with the incident.
