TMZ broke the story ... Richard Franco was apprehended late Monday night after scaling Halle's wall and it was the third time in as many days that he trespassed on her property.

Franco served time for battery last month, but that's just the most recent run-in he had with the law.
His other offenses include:

-- felony car theft
-- felony vandalism
-- several drug use offenses
-- several juvenile offenses

In the most recent criminal case -- the battery -- in addition to serving jail time, Franco was ordered to enroll in anger management classes.

We know LAPD Threat Management -- which handles many serious celebrity stalker cases -- has been deeply involved and law enforcement sources say they have concerns about Franco.

I guess the good news is he probably violated parole, so they can keep him as long as they want without having to set bail.

Franco? This is like an episode of General Hospital.

James Franco played a crazy stalker named Franco.

Some of you people have nothing better to do than to trash people you don't even know.

I work with celebrities on a daily basis. i was never a fan of Halle Berry but i can honestly say she is one of the nicest, most down to earth celebrities I have met.

She is a human being people. A lot of you wouldnt be able to handle fame if the tables were turned. Not to mention the fact that most of you seem really angry and bitter.

You will never admit how childish, miserable and jealous you all are of people who are more successful and better looking than you could dream of.

I'd be interested to know how many DAYS he was given for his previous crimes committed. BTW, WTF is this crap about "Anger Management"? He knows when he can act like an idiot and when he can't. Maybe this time the court should demand that he attend a class on "appropriateness"
