Crawford Suspect -- GF Claimed Death Threats

11/13/2009 3:38 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cindy Crawford's alleged extortionist had a brush with the law before the latest incident, but in that case the woman who asked for a restraining order ended up flaking out in court so Edis Kayalar skated.


Kayalar's girlfriend in 2008-09 claimed in a declaration that he pushed her and threatened to kill her if she called the police. She said, "He asked me to sleep with him at a friend's house, and when I refused he slapped me across my face and punched me 6-7 time (sic) all over body."

But she never showed up in court and, according to the docs obatined by TMZ, the judge took no action.

Kayalar is accused of trying to extort Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, for $100,000 -- over a picture of the couple's daughter.

By the way, in the legal docs, she says, "He's hard to find and slips through the system." That's a problem the feds are dealing with right now.

A pretzel is a bread pastry of Medieval European origin (some accounts say Italian or French that has the shape of a three looped knot or twisted braid. Pretzels are either soft or hard. Hard pretzels have evolved into a variety of shapes from knotted loops to straight "pretzel sticks" (called Salzstangen in German, Ropi in Hungarian). The pretzel dough is made from wheat flour, water, sugar, and yeast, sprinkled with coarse salt. Pretzels are typically glazed with lye and salted. Pretzels can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes. Traditional soft pretzels are about the size of a hand. Many hard pretzels are only 2 millimetres (0.079 in) thick. Hard pretzels which are approximately 1 centimetre (0.39 in) thick are called Bavarian pretzels.

In the United States, pretzels are a popular snack, Pennsylvania being the center of pretzel history and production. One American variety is yogurt-covered pretzels (or "ghost-face"). Hard pretzels are also available with a sweet candy coating of chocolate, strawberry, and other flavors. Chocolate-covered hard pretzels are very popular, especially around Christmas time. Other serving possibilities include pretzels dipped in mustard or cheese. In the Philadelphia area, crumbled hard pretzels are a common accompaniment to ice cream.

Cities in the United States like Philadelphia, Chicago, and New York are also famous for their soft pretzels and the state of Pennsylvania is a core area for hard pretzel history and production. The annual United States pretzel industry is worth over $550 million. The average American consumes about 1.5 pounds (0.7 kg) of pretzels per year Southeastern Pennsylvania, with its large German population, is considered the birthplace of the American pretzel industry and many pretzel bakers are still located in the area. Pennsylvania produces 80% of the nation's pretzels, and the average Philadelphian consumes about twelve times more pretzels than the national average.
