Gary Dourdan's Ex GF

He Broke My Nose

So I Want a Restraining Order

11/9/2011 12:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Dourdan's ex-girlfriend has filed for a restraining order, claiming he punched her in the face and broke her nose. 

Nicole Vail Cannizzaro claims in the documents, obtained by TMZ, she had broken up with Dourdan in May "due to his excessive drug use, which only worsened after cutting off communication with him."

Nicole claims Gary put recording devices in her home and attempted to break in. She says Sunday night he punched her in the face and broke her nose.  Nicole says she ran to the back alley, where a neighbor called 911. Gary was arrested for felony battery but bailed out.

Nicole is asking that Gary stay 100 yards away from her and her 2 dogs, Charlie and Chanel.

A hearing for the restraining order is set for later this month. Nicole apparently got an emergency protective order from the cops, but it expires next week.

A call to Dourdan's rep was not immediately returned.

That bastard sure went downhill since he left CSI.

Now let's all forget about him and let him rot in private.

Wow, not very often you get a restraining order to stay away from somebody's dogs. I wonder if those bit*hes had to appear in court.

I gotta a question: why aren't the attorneys for these women demanding GPS with VICTIM NOTIFICATION (in real time.) Victim notification in real time means the women can save their own hide, as the GPS staffer is the first responder...then calls the cops while the women are hot footing it out of the area.

Why aren't attorneys protecting their clients?

What the hell is wrong with him?? there are more women out there. You own "things" not people! What an idiot.

Did this happen at her place or his? Because the first story said his place and this one implies her place. If his, I have no sympathy for her because, having broken up with him in May, she was stupid to go there. If he went to her place and broke in, throw the book at the dude. Now, if she let him in...I find it hard to overlook personal responsibility when a person's own stupid actions got them in the situation.

Gary has always had anger and violence issues. He either needs to get help or be thrown in prison. He's gonna screw with the wrong person and end up 6 feet under.

Why does he have to stay away from the two dogs Charlie and Chanel? He only broke one bitch's nose.

Geez, he just wanted his recording equipment back. And another thing, he has to stay away from her two dogs? That sounds kind of pervy....
