LOS ANGELES (AP) - A 50-year-old California woman has been arrested for allegedly violating a restraining order that required her to be at least 100 yards away from actor Jeff Goldblum.
The Los Angeles Times reports Linda Ransom was arrested Friday near the Ahmanson Theatre after security agents detained her. The restraining order was showed to a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy and Ransom was taken to jail where she's being held on $20,000 bail.
In June, a judge issued the order after Ransom repeatedly went to the home of the "Jurassic Park" and "Independence Day" star. Goldblum wrote in a petition that Ransom had been harassing him for the past decade.
Ransom has claimed one of Goldblum's employees attacked her and she wanted to file a case.
