Jesse James' Ex Arrested for Harassment

1/29/2011 12:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James' ex-wife Janine Lindemulder was arrested just outside Austin, TX this morning on a warrant for harassing Jesse in a series of "abusive" phone messages ... TMZ has learned.

Janine Lindemulder Arrested
Janine was popped by the Hays County Sheriff's Department who had three warrants issued for Janine after Jesse turned over threatening voicemail messages he says Janine left for him.

According to legal docs, Jesse claims Janine places "chronic harassing telephone calls to him all hours of the day and night." He says he has received 300 calls just since he moved to Texas. In the docs, Jesse says the calls became "so harassing, abusive and bad" that he turned over several messages to the Austin Police Department.

After she was busted, her truck was towed away (see below).

UPDATE: Janine's attorney didn't know about the arrest, but told TMZ that Janine made phone calls "out of frustration because he did not let her see or speak to her daughter for months."

UPDATE 2: We're told Janine probably won't be able to see a judge until tomorrow, so she'll remain locked up until then.

UPDATE 1/30: Janine went in front of the judge Sunday morning where she was charged with three counts of misdemeanor harassment and a bail was set at $6,000.

Just what every little girl needs, an unbalanced, crack riddled mommy. There's a reason why JJ has custody.

I'm just thankful that Sandra Bullock isn't involved with this bunch anymore. Kat Von D is pretty tough, she could take care of Jesse's ex wife. She can have them.

Had to look her up. She was really pretty. I hate neck tattoos but to each their own. Don't like that haircut it aged her. I'd be pissed too if someone wouldn't let me see my kid. Phone calls are nothing compared to what some people might do. He deserves a kick in the face. Kat Von D is stupid.

Janie-get help. It is obvious you have anger management issues. And whether or not Jesse is keeping you form your daughter, sadly you are not the ony mother this has ever happened to, and others learn to cope. Stay strong. Get help and move in more positive directions. Maybe one day Jesse will let you see your daughter if you cklean up your act.

This saddens me because Janine used to be a sweet girl.
Damned drugs!!

Janine it is not too late to turn your life around!
Stop blaming others and step up and just be a good person and a good mom!!!

Did the Jerry Springer Show move to Austin?? Not sure which one is trashier, Jesse, Janine, or Kat. But the man deserves it all. He is a POS. I feel for those folks in TX and for Sandra since she thought it would be nice to keep in touch with Jesse's kids and let them move to TX... now look how they've all repaid her.

I rather read of Jesse going to jail when he goes to CA to see is skank. I feel for the people of Austin when the circus comes/lives there now. Jesse needs to move his ontourage back to CA.

She's smiling in her mug shot! Dumb move lady, you think you accomplished something dont you! You just added to your already existing problems dumb dumb! Not using her lawyer and the proper channels just shows this lady has NO common sense and doesn't have a clue about how to be a parent

She needs to direct her frustration toward the Judge who's done nothing to enforce his orders.

Her attorney should request that her case be transferred to the Texas courts where orders can be enforced.
