LOS ANGELES – A judge has cracked down hard on an obsessed fan of actress Sandra Bullock (search), ordering the alleged stalker to steer well clear of the raven-haired beauty.
Thomas James Weldon, 34, of Royal Oak, Mich., was ordered to stay at least 200 yards away from Bullock, 38, by Judge Scott M. Gordon last Friday. Gordon is slated to rule on June 6 whether to make the restraining order permanent.
According to papers filed by Bullock, Weldon has followed Bullock for more than a year to California, South Carolina and her native Texas. In an unrelated Michigan case, Weldon has been convicted of stalking and cannot carry a gun, according to Bullock's lawyers.
