Jennifer Aniston’s stalker arrested while “laying in wait” for the ‘Friends’ star
HollywoodNews.com: A man who allegedly stalked actress Jennifer Aniston has been arrested, according to reports.
According to court papers, “delusional” Jason Peyton drove across the United States on a one-man mission to find the former ‘Friends’ star. Cops found him waiting at a location he believed Aniston regularly visited. He had spent eight days trying to find her. Court documents reveal 24-year-old Peyton was discovered on 15 July “laying in wait in a location he believes she frequents with a sharp object, a bag, a roll of duct tape and written messages about [Aniston]”.
He had also carved huge messages into the paint of his car, which read “I Love Jennifer Aniston” and “I Love You Jennifer Aniston”. After being arrested, Peyton was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold. ‘The Bounty Hunter’ star has reportedly now obtained a restraining order against Peyton, whose violent past reportedly includes stabbing himself and hitting his mother with a golf club.
Peyton had previously been institutionalised and ordered to take anti-psychotic drugs, but authorities claim he stopped taking the medication in March. Cops caught up with Peyton after he left a note for his father on 25 June in Pennsylvania, saying he was going to California.
His father realised he was going to find Aniston and alerted the police. Peyton reportedly believes he is related to a string of celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez, Courteney Cox and former President George Bush.
