Justin Hodak, 40, the ex-fiance of Jodie Sweetin, 35, was arrested Monday after violating the terms of a restraining order.


He was placed in handcuffs after allegedly driving past Sweetin’s home in Sherman Oaks, California. The Fuller House star was granted a temporary restraining order against Hodak after she ended their two-year relationship.

Court documents alleged that Hodak “engaged in violent arguments with Sweetin, in which he threw objects at her,” and that “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. He also waited for Sweetin to confront her at her children’s school.”

This marks the third arrest in just nine days for Hodak. He was first arrested last Saturday when Sweetin claimed he had threatened to kill himself with a 9mm pistol. “During the course of the investigation, [Hodak] was found to possess a firearm,” the LAPD said. “He is a prior felon, and a prior felon may not possess firearms.”

The on Friday, he was again arrested for violating an emergency protective order coming from the initial arrest. He “came back over to the residence which he was restrained from, and officers made contact, and he was arrested for violating a court order,” the police explained.

The restraining order protects Sweetin as well as her children, Beatrix Coyle, 6, and Zoie Herpin, 8, her mother Jane Sweetin, 67, and father Sam Sweetin, 82, and her assistant Lauren Hussey, 29.

Another court hearing is scheduled for April 14.
