Laurence Fishburne

Alleged Stalker

Tries to Evict Actor

Laurence Fishburne has just obtained a restraining order against a man who showed up on his doorstep on New Year's Day and demanded that the actor move out of his house.

Anthony Francis allegedly told Fishburne he owned the house and the Fishburnes were there illegally.  Laurence may have reason to worry.  According to the legal docs, cops told Fishburne Francis was released from prison on XMAS day after serving time for cyber-stalking and making criminal threats.

LAPD cops told Fishburne they got a call 2 weeks back from Francis, claiming he owned the actor's pad.

According to docs, Francis left a letter at Fishburne's home last week, which said in part, "You are to leave this house immediately.  This means all tenants are to evacuate ASAP."

The restraining order prohibits Francis from coming within 100 yards of Fishburne, his wife and daughter.  Francis also can't go near Fishburne's house.
