Jennifer Aniston Stalking Suspect -- Troubled Past

7/21/2010 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a mug shot of the man accused of stalking Jennifer Aniston ... but this photo of Jason Peyton was taken in 2008 after he was arrested for stalking someone else.

As we first reported, Peyton was arrested last week in L.A. for allegedly prowling around an area frequented by Aniston ... while packing a sharp object, a bag and a roll of duct tape.

But according to law enforcement, Peyton was also busted in 2008 in Pennsylvania for harassing a female neighbor.  According to police docs from the 2008 case, Peyton told police, "You know that she loves me, her husband rapes her, she needs my help."

Peyton was eventually found not guilty by reason of insanity -- and was ordered to be hospitalized. It's unclear how long he remained under psychiatric care.

Now, Peyton is being held on a mandatory psychiatric hold for the Aniston incident. Once he's released, he must stay at least 100 yards away from everything and everyone associated with Jennifer Aniston.

And he was released why? If they are found to be insane then they should spend their life in a mental institution.
And oh gee now that a celeb has been threatened it's much more important then his neighbor.

Stalking is no joke! Isn’t it weird that there are rarely stalker stories about these celebrities who’ll do anything for attention (Heidi, Spence, etc), but the ones who actually have talent. I think it has something to do with the skill and charm actresses like Aniston and Bullock put up on the screen. Of course they’re attractive, but their charm and genuine movie star appeal makes them more of a “fantasy”.

I’m not condoning stalking AT ALL, but one would think they’d be used to it once pictures like this got out: http://www.digitallizardproductions.com/vagina-hero-07.21.10--jennifer-aniston.html

Ya know, considering her age, she might wanna give him a shot. He's at least as good-looking as Vince Vaughn.

If an animal is considered mentally ill or dangerous, that animal is put to sleep. There is no psychiatric care.
Why spend tax money to help people who are mentally ill or dangerous?

@ post 7 kromen

Its the truth and a fact of life, like wearing a seat belts saves lives, or meth is addictive, of if a bear chases you in the woods good chance your going to die.

fact is black men are 25 times more likely to kill than a white man or an Asian man.

facts are facts

politically correct people hate facts.

Your 7 times more likely to die in a car than flying on an Airline

Is that fact ok for the PC crowd, or is that racist against cars ?

I've been stalked -- twice. One got the message as soon as police were involved. The 2nd, brought a gun to court (before metal detectors) and threw his "Diary to God" to the judge. Divine Intervention-- the book opened to the page "if I can't have her in life, I'll take her in death". They grabbed him and found the gun. He was not guilt-- insanity, spent 6 months in nut house. Got out, stalked me again. Back in 6 months. Got out, and stalked another woman.

Chuck, you want facts... okay, how's this: NO ONE ON EARTH has committed more atrocities than whites. Some of the most depraved behavior in history can be attributed to whites. "Facts is facts" as you say. Don't let a few decades of inner city violence fueled by poverty and sensationalized by the media let you forget thousands of years of history. Blacks didn't torture, mutilate, and kill our own savior. Now don't get me wrong, I love all races but when I see idiots like you with your deliberately misleading Breitbart facts, I call you out.
