Laurence Fishburne has obtained a restraining order against an alleged stalker. TMZ reports that the Matrix star went to court after he claimed that a man showed up at his house on New Year's Day and demanded that he move out, claiming that he owned the home and that Fishburne's family were there illegally.
The man, Anthony Francis, has reportedly done time for cyber-stalking and making criminal threats. He was released on Christmas Day for that sentence. The LAPD says they received a call from Francis a couple weeks ago in which he claimed he owned the home.
The restraining order means that Francis cannot coming within 100 yards of Fishburne, his wife, his daughter or their house.
