'NYPD Blue' Star -- My Life is In Danger

1/29/2010 8:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gail O'Grady"NYPD Blue" star Gail O'Grady has obtained a temporary restraining order against a man she claims has been stalking her -- and her 5-year-old son.

In court documents filed today in L.A. County Superior Court by attorneys Mark Geragos and Tamar Arminak -- O'Grady claims a man named Steven Church has been scaring the hell out of her by repeatedly showing up to a store she owns and her son's school.

According to the docs, O'Grady claims Church first approached her in September 2009 -- claiming they worked together on the show "Boston Legal." O'Grady claims he approached her with a business idea -- but clearly wanted more.

But when O'Grady refused his alleged advances, she claims Church began sending "in excess of 30 phone calls and 70 text messages in any given day."

O'Grady also claims Church wanted to pick her kid up from school -- and when she told him no, his behavior became "hostile and erratic."

O'Grady claims from that point on, Church began leaving gifts at her house for her son and visiting a store she owns and harassing employees.

But today, with the help of private investigator Scott Ross, O'Grady obtained a TRO -- which means Church has to stay 100 yards away from O'Grady and her son.

The next hearing is set for February 18 -- when O'Grady hopes to make the restraining order permanent.
