"Mr. Lodge appeared at a hotel I was staying and checked in at the same hotel," Michael Thomas, who admitted to sleeping with Lodge's then-wife in the documents, wrote. "He called my room from the lobby twice and attempted to identify my room number. Mr. Lodge assaulted me, including but not limited to punching me in the face multiple times."
Thomas allegedly suffered a black eye, bruising and other injuries to his face.
"Mr. Lodge is a volatile individual who has assaulted me," he wrote. "He has also stalked me on multiple occasions. I am worried that he may retaliate, stalk or assault me in between the hearing and the time I can get him served."
The temporary restraining order was granted.
OC Weekly was the first to report on the battery and assault charges.
