Jodie Sweetin's relationship meltdown has gone from bad to worse! On Monday, the 35-year-old actress' former fiancé, Justin Hodak, was arrested for the third time in just over a week on charges he violated a temporary restraining order Sweetin recently filed against him.
New court documents, signed by Sweetin on March 23, show a judge had ordered Hodak, 40, to stay a minimum of 100 yards away from Sweetin, including her home and children's school, and avoid all direct and indirect contact with her or her family.
Sweetin detailed her fears about Hodak in her petition for the temporary order of protection, beginning with a recent fight that turned scary.
On March 18, as Radar previously reported, Sweetin was first forced to call the cops on Hodak after she called it quits on their engagement and the two got into an altercation.
The fight allegedly ended with Hodak, 40, threatening suicide. When cops arrived on the scene, Hodak was in possession of a gun and they arrested him.
The court documents related to the restraining order now lay bare Sweetin's frightening claims about that incident.
"Hodak engaged in a violent argument with Jodie Sweetin at their then-shared residence … Hodak has a history of drug abuse, but had been sober for a time before the incident."
"However, Hodak had been using steroids and testosterone supplements, which made his temper worse, and on the night of the incident, was abusing alcohol and marijuana. During the argument, he screamed at Sweetin using harshly abusive language," continue the documents.
"Sweetin then asked him to leave the house. He threatened to commit suicide if she made him leave. He escalated the conflict by pulling down a seven-foot bookcase, which blocked the doorway to the room that Sweetin was in, effectively trapping her there."
Further escalating the confrontation, Sweetin alleged that Hodak took out a nine-millimeter gun and made threats to use it before he left her home.
"Hodak has acknowledged to Sweetin that he had served time in jail for felony offenses. He told her that he committed a robbery to support a drug habit, read the documents. "According to law enforcement, his prior offenses include assault with a deadly weapon. He kept an illegal AR-15 assault rifle at the house, which the police have confiscated."
"In the day between his departure from the house and his being served with the Emergency Protective Order, he made at least 87 phone calls to Sweetin's cell phone. He threatened to sell potentially embarrassing pictures of Sweetin that he has on his phone."
Hodak's behavior during the incident at her home wasn't the only time they had troubling confrontations, claimed Sweetin in the shocking court documents.
"On previous occasions, Hodak had engaged in violent arguments with Sweetin, in which he threw objects at her. Following a prior break-up with Sweetin, he came to the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, where Sweetin works as an actress, demanding to see her and engaging in a dispute with the security guards there," read the legal papers. "He also waited for Sweetin to confront her at her children's school."
Hodak will appear in court on April 14 to answer charges related to his arrests.
