SANTA MONICA, Calif. – That bizarre incident that disrupted Thursday's taping of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" has resulted in a restraining order.
A Los Angeles court has ordered the woman who suddenly confronted guest Colin Farrell to stay at least 150 yards away from him. A judge holds a hearing on the restraining order next month.
During the taping, 31-year-old Dessarae Bradford suddenly walked out of the audience and handed the actor what police say may have been some papers or books. The show was stopped and the woman was escorted off N-B-C's premises and told she'd be arrested if she came back.
The actor's publicist denies Farrell had ever met or spoken to her before, but notes that Bradford has repeatedly tried to sue him. The publicist won't say why, only that the suits are bogus. Courts have dismissed two of them.
A suit Bradford has filed against Farrell in federal court alleges assault and slander.
