Bill Nye "The Science Guy" is asking a Los Angeles County judge for protection from his wife after she allegedly tried to damage his garden, TMZ reported.
In the request for a temporary restraining order filed by Nye against his wife of one year, Nye claims his estranged wife showed up at his Studio City home on Labor Day, dressed in black and armed with two large bottles "filled with some sort of solvent" to do damage to his garden, which he says provides "food produce," according to the handwritten documents obtained by TMZ.
Nye also alleges that the herbicide was "quite toxic" and thought Tindall might have squirted him in the eyes with it had she gotten closer.
Nye's wife, Blair Tindal, responded to the order by describing the incident as a "foolish, sophomoric act of poor judgment" brought on by a series of personal and family problems.
She also strongly denied being a threat to Nye, and accuses him of "emotional cruelty."
The couple wed last February in a ceremony officiated by Pastor Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life."
