Bullock gets order against female stalker
EmptySandra Bullock on Friday won a three-year restraining order against a woman she said had tossed animal fur over her gate, left woven palm fronds in her yard and tried to run down her husband.
The "Miss Congeniality" star told a court in the Orange County city of Westminster that the woman, identified as Marcia Diana Valentine, had left the fronds, complete with "weird signs," and "pieces of animal fur" in her yard on five occasions.
Valentine, 45, from nearby Huntington Beach, was arrested last month on charges of trying to run down Bullock's motorcycle mogul husband, Jesse James, in front of the couple's house.
She has also been found on several occasions lying in front of the couple's garage door, yelling obscenities at James, Bullock's lawyer said.
Valentine told police after her April arrest that she had seen all of Bullock's movies. She is free on $25,000 bail pending a court hearing.
The restraining order bars Valentine from coming within 500 yards of Bullock, James or his three children for three years.
Bullock, 42, star of "Two Weeks Notice" and "28 Days," married James in July 2005. James, who builds custom motorcycles and is the producer of the television series "Monster Garage," has three children from a previous marriage.
