Paris Hilton's fame has taken a scary turn this year as her alleged stalker James Rainford has continued to invade the star's privacy. Over the holiday weekend, James was arrested after he was seen poking around Hilton's Malibu beach home.
This past April, the man assaulted Hilton's then-boyfriend, Cy Waits and served only 24 days of his 227-day sentence after pleading no contest to battery charge. In the beginning of the year, he also pleaded no contest for trespassing after he relentlessly tried to contact Paris at her Hollywood Hills home. He was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to stay 200 yards away from her property.
He evidently hasn't learned a lesson from the punishments – or followed court orders. Rainford was handcuffed at around 4:30 PM on July 4th after he was allegedly hanging around the beach near Hilton's home. An onlooker said: "Someone recognized him as being the man who had given her trouble in the past and the cops arrived pretty quickly."
Rainford is currently being held on $20,000 bail, and hopefully this time around will stop with the threatening behavior.
