Uma Thurman's mentally unbalanced stalker arrested

A US-based man has written countless letters and emails to actress Uma Thurman during the recent two years threatening to kill himself if he saw the actress with another man. The man has been charged with stalking, prosecutors said.

Jack Jordan, 35, a former psychiatric patient, was arrested outside Thurman's home Oct. 5 and charged with attempted coercion, aggravated harassment and stalking. He was jailed in lieu of $10,000 (EUR 7,000) bail and accused of stalking Thurman for the past two years.

Prosecutor Christopher Hill told Criminal Court Judge Evelyn Laporte on Thursday the grand jury had indicted Jordan, but he did not disclose the exact charges because the indictment was not officially filed.

At the request of Jordan's Legal Aid lawyer, Douglas Lyons, the judge ordered a suicide watch, medical treatment and administrative segregation for the defendant. Lyons did not immediately return a later call seeking comment.

The judge also signed an order of protection directing Jordan, of California, to stay away from the 37-year-old actress if he is released on bail.

A call to Thurman's agent in Los Angeles was not immediately returned, and effort to reach her publicist in New York were not successful late Thursday.

A felony complaint by Detective Edward Yzaguirre says Jordan tried on Nov. 8, 2005, to get into the star's trailer on a movie set in Manhattan after claiming he was a friend of hers. A security guard ordered him to leave, according to the complaint.

Jordan also tried to give someone on the set letters to give Thurman. The letters included a cartoon drawing of Jordan walking on the edge of a razor blade and the actress digging a grave for him, according to the complaint.

The next day, the complaint says, Jordan's family had him involuntarily committed to a hospital for psychiatric treatment after they learned about his behavior on the movie set.

Jordan was eventually released from the hospital. During August and September of 2006, he sent e-mails addressed to Thurman and other members of her family.

In August 2007, the complaint says, he appeared once or twice a day, three or four times a week, at Thurman's home, asking to see her and being told to leave. At least twice he left letters there for Thurman, he said.

Yzagiurre's complaint says one of Jordan's letters reads in part, "I feel afraid that if I see you out again with another man, I will want to kill myself, maybe even after we meet."

Thurman has starred in "Pulp Fiction," "The Producers," and the "Kill Bill" movies.

It was either inability to analyze or pure cowardice, but the cruise missile attack on Syria had a purely political outcome that would not affect the outcome of the Syrian conflict. The US is obviously revisiting the Iraq crisis from 2003
