Paris Hilton Suspect -- Turn Your Head and Cuff

10/13/2010 8:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: The L.A. City Attorney has officially charged the suspect with trespassing and battery ... both misdemeanors. If convicted on both counts, dude faces up to a year behind bars and thousands of dollars in fines.

TMZ has obtained a photo of the man cops arrested at Paris Hilton's L.A. home yesterday -- moments after he allegedly snuck past a guard gate and tried to knock on her door.

As TMZ first reported, the suspect -- James Rainford -- allegedly got into a physical altercation with private security after he rode his bike to Paris' front door and began to ring her doorbell. LAPD soon arrived on scene and arrested the suspect for battery.

We're told Rainford told police that he "knew" Paris ... though sources close to Hilton tell us she has never met this guy in her life.

Rainford was held on $20,000 bail.

She better get better security before one of these maniacs actually do get into her house when she is home.

Hmmm on second thought....

Something FISHY about this incident. If this guy is saying that he KNEW PARIS -- did he elaborate on How he knew her? What if the poor guy has some connection to her. Just in case he is a alleged perve, she should get an electric fence or something -- better security. A couple of Pit Bulls could help.

The cops are posing for the camera. It looks like Reno 911 or something.

No wonder you folks (state) are broke in California, you have cops arresting people for KNOCKING ON A DOOR!!! How is it that the likes of Paris get to have people arrested and thrown in jail for knocking on a door? Too bad the state of California couldn't tap into the power of self-importance and light up homes and highways with the glare of stupidity that comes off of this person. If I were paying taxes in that state, I would be pissed.

Yathink? He was doing what he normally does when he pops over to Paris's place. Knew what he was doing and where he was going. Probably had instructions from Paris on how to avoid the dopey guard and all. Now she will have to pay is bond (through some lawyer) so he doesn't spill ALL the beans.
