A man has been arrested on suspicion of violating a restraining order that bars him from being within 200 yards of Paris Hilton or her home in Los Angeles.

The arrest came after authorities were notified of a man standing on a beach looking into Hilton's Malibu home, the Los Angeles sheriff's department said.

The caller recognised the man as James Rainford. He pleaded no contest to a battery charge in April after Hilton's then-boyfriend Cy Waits was attacked outside a courthouse.

Deputies who responded were met by numerous paparazzi who pointed out Rainford standing on the beach.

Rainford was arrested without incident and is being held on $20,000 (£12,400) bail.

The arrest comes less than a week after a man convicted of trying to burgle Paris Hilton's home was sentenced to two years in prison.
