Jeremy Jackson has been banned from seeing his ex-girlfriend after the Baywatch actor allegedly threatened to murder her and attacked her last month.
Elise Ginsburg just obtained a restraining order against Jackson, claiming that he is violent and has threatened her life. She told the court that Jackson threatened her a number of times with a knife and a wine opener. Last month, he actually attacked her, strangling her and leaving cuts and a bruised eye.
Ginsburg said she fears that Jackson may continue to target her and could be planning to put together a group of people to rob her house, TMZ reported.
A judge ordered Jackson to stay at least 100 yards from his former girlfriend.
Jackson was known for his role on Baywatch, playing Hobie, the young son of star David Hasselhoff.
As Bang Showbiz reported, it is not the first bit of trouble for the former Baywatch actor, and it was his work on television that helped catch him.
“The incident comes a few months after Jeremy was arrested for allegedly stabbing a man in Westlake, California before fleeing the scene of the crime.
“The assailant fled before officers arrived at the scene of the incident, but the victim was able to identify his attacker as ‘Hobie, from ‘Baywatch.'”
Jackson was taken into custody for the incident but was released on bail later that day.
Though it’s been off the air for several years now, Baywatch has been making headlines, and not just for Jackson’s bad behavior. The show could be getting a new life with word of a possible reboot.
Not everyone is on board with the idea, however, including the show’s most famous actress.
“The Baywatch remake is a bad idea that should never be made into a movie… so says the woman who became famous from the original.
“Pam Anderson is scoffing at the Zac Efron/Dwayne Johnson reboot, saying “No one appreciates the remakes.”
“Pam goes on to say Baywatch was the best time of her life but the 90’s were a “simpler, sweeter time” for TV, it won’t work on the big screen in 2015.”
Jeremy Jackson has run into a number of other problems since he left Baywatch in 1999. He has opened up about his substance abuse problems, including addictions to meth and alcohol. He was also kicked off the U.K. version of Celebrity Big Brother after had inappropriate contact with model and fellow contestant Chloe Goodman.
