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 Hilton's home was sentenced to two years in prison.
