Steven Seagal

7/29/2010 8:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven Seagal got a temporary restraining order today against a woman who allegedly attacked one of his employees while attempting to get into Seagal's house.

The request for the TRO -- filed and granted in L.A. County Superior Court -- refers to Angela Rain Bates, a 55-year-old woman, as a "delusional stalker" who was arrested at Seagal's home on July 14.

According to the docs, she attacked a groundskeeper and threw rocks through a window of the house before LAPD arrived and took her into custody. 

According to the papers -- Bates ran down Seagal's driveway and when the groundskeeper tried to stop her she, "forcefully kick[ed] him twice, in the groin, and on his shin, causing a two-inch contusion on his leg."

The police report states that Bates told officers she was married to Seagal's father -- who is deceased -- and that she has lived in Seagal's house for over 20 years.

Bates was charged with battery, vandalism, and trespassing -- all misdemeanors. She pled not guilty and is still in jail waiting for her next court date.

The order requires Bates to stay 100 yards away from Seagal, his family, and the groundskeeper.

The chick that sued him for sexual harassment hired a 55-year old female assassin to take him out. She's out for justice....

If he was only as good as he thinks he is, a big fake out like David Caridean.

You can't defend yourself against a woman, especially in California. You have to hide in the house or take a beating. If she had even one mark on her, your ass would be in jail.

A woman would have to be psychotic to think Steven Segal is worth stalking. He should be flattered that he even got to be part of a delusion.

Wow. I hope this woman gets help. She's obviously mentally ill.

My aunt had the same problem. For a year or so she was convinced that Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) was her husband. Really sad.

That's right. The only person who gets to beat anybody up is Steven...and they're usually women.

You'd think Steven Seagul would beat her up, you with his wicked bung-foo karate chop sticks or something. Yeah stalking this guy should require payment, he's so boring...

Hello,
Mr. Seagal did the right thing. All he needs is for more stupid things to be said, and just like some of the IDIOTS making comments on his martial-arts ability. You are very ignorant of what California is like when it comes to the law. No matter if you are protecting your property you will go to jail if you put hands on a women unless you are a cop, or someone in law-enforcement. He was smart he allowed the law enforcement people to do there job, and that to me is smart. OKAY!!!!!
