'Starsky' Gets Restraining Order Against Superfan

5/5/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who played Starsky on "Starsky and Hutch" back in the '70s got a major victory against an obsessed superfan today -- after a judge ordered the woman to stay the hell away from him.

As TMZ first reported, 68-year-old Paul Michael Glaser filed a restraining order last month against the woman who used to run his official website -- claiming she was "irrational" and he "feared for his safety".

Moments ago in L.A. County Superior Court, a judge agreed to grant the restraining order after hearing from several witnesses ... one of whom claimed the woman "felt safe living in her car 100 ft from Paul's home."

During the hearing, Glaser -- who was in attendance -- was asked to "describe his T.V. experience" to the court -- because the judge had NO CLUE who he was ... which is shocking because literally every person alive in the '70s watched that show ... according to multiple experts in "old people stuff" here at TMZ.

Uneducated, oblivious judge.

So glad that Jake and PMG were present and safe during the LA Times BookFest. What a bother that his project has to be affected by this woman. I pity this guy and how he loves his project as I saw him clutching the book in his heart with his dog I think. Please support by pre-ordering.

What an idiot of a judge. What if he wasn't an actor? Would he not have gotten the restraining order?
I loved Starsky & Hutch!!! Yes I'm that old....

There you have it, folks. The judge has rendered a decision, which goes to prove that where there's smoke there's fire.

I know it is scary to have a stalker, but it is nice to see that after all these years, Paul still has it going on. Remember when his poor wife died about 20 years ago, how said was that.

Forget the stalker..he should get a restraining order against his eyebrows!!! Those things shouldn't be allowed within 50 feet of his face!!!!

I think the judge can be forgiven. It was a pretty lame show. He also posted a step outline of the book online and ye gods, it looks weak.

That is a helluva big black wig. Couldn't he find one that had black sideburns too? Who does he think he's kidding besides himself? I thought Starsky and Hutch was a stupid show but I remember a friend of mine liked and watched it. At least the Dukes of Hazzard had Catherine Bach in jean shorts. Don't remember any hot woman being on Starsky and Hutch.

One day most the big stars of today will find themseles irrelevant too. Sure as shooting at least one of those kids from Glee or Gossip Girls will have to explain to somebody who the hell they were. Hell most of them would have to explain to me now who they are now.
