Court grants Jennifer Aniston restraining order

A court has issued a temporary restraining order to Jennifer Aniston against a man who authorities say traveled cross-country in a delusional attempt to marry her.

Authorities say he was stopped after spending days trying to find Aniston on Sunset Boulevard. Court documents say police detained Jason R. Peyton last week after finding him with a sharp object, duct tape and love notes to the "Friends" star.  

Police said Peyton etched messages into the paint of his car professing his love for Aniston. Peyton, described as “an obsessed, mentally ill and delusional stalker - with a history of violence and criminal stalking . . .,” must now stay 100 yards away from Aniston’s home, places of work and cars.

The filings state Peyton has been accused of stalking others and is disobeying court orders that he must take anti-psychotic medications.

The 24-year-old was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold by Los Angeles police. A hearing on the order will be held Aug. 9.

The court filings also state that Peyton has said he won't stop his pursuit of Aniston.
