The suspect, James Rainford, was popped in front of Hilton's pad in the Hollywood Hills back in October after sneaking on to her property and then getting in to an altercation with Paris' private security. 

Rainford pled no contest to civil assault -- and was sentenced to 3 years probation.

Today, Rainford allegedly struck again -- sources on the scene tell us he smacked Waits in the back of the head as Cy and Paris were walking into a hearing where Paris was set to testify against a different man who allegedly sneaked on to her property and pulled out a knife last year.

We're told Cy's bodyguard immediately apprehended Rainford and turned him over to LAPD.

During the incident, Rainford was telling people he KNOWS Paris ... and insisted Hilton's father, Rick, had given him permission to marry her.

OooooNooo!    

". . . he KNOWS Paris ... and insisted Hilton's father, Rick, had given him permission to marry her."

Right. . . and Obama's birth certificate was forged by the Russians as payment for *****ian oil leases, and the C.I.A. is controlling the weather with the HARP installation up north, and. . . wait--there's more. . .

She needs to be in a gilded cage. She is far too delicate and lovely to be subjected to madmen. Cy passed up an opportunity to save her life again.

Honestly, I'm living w/ HSV-2 for 2 years. It feels like the life I had ahead of me was ripped away. I heard about STDdatings.com and thought I'd give it a try. it's only for those w/ herpes, HIV, HPV or other STDs..really get lots of help. no rejection or discrimination..most important, find hope again.

The bodyguard did a great job. He removed the threat, restrained him, and turned him over to the Police. A lot of other bodyguards would have beaten the suspect and then landed the principal (Hilton) in civil court for years.

By the way, that wasnt much of an "attack". But it was good viewing.

The attacker shares an odd resemblance to Michael Bolton.

Sidenote: @Jake - Technically the correct usage is sneaked, not snuck. I'm not a grammar expert but I learned that in English 101.

Paris Hilton claims she is still a virgin. Says she has the doctors $100,000 reconstructive surgery bill to prove it.
