MALIBU, Calif. (AP) -- Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies have arrested a man accused of violating a restraining order that bars him from being within 200 yards of Paris Hilton or her home.
The sheriff's department says in a statement that someone called authorities Monday afternoon and reported a man standing on a beach looking into Hilton's Malibu home.
The caller recognized the man as James Rainford. He pleaded no contest to a battery charge in April after Hilton's then-boyfriend Cy Waits was attacked outside a courthouse.
Deputies who responded were met by numerous paparazzi who pointed out Rainford standing on the beach.
Rainford was arrested without incident and is being held on $20,000 bail.
The arrest comes less than a week after a man convicted of trying to burglarize Paris Hilton's home was sentenced to two years in prison.
