Bristol Palin Gets Restraining Order Against Stalker

Attempting to keep herself safe from a deranged stalker, Bristol Palin was granted a restraining order recently against a Texas man who got way too close.

Earlier this month, the daughter of former VP candidate Sarah Palin filed for a temporary restraining order after Michael Cummings sent her a note saying "I (heart) you" complete with an engagement ring. Allegedly, he also showed up at her mother's house in an attempt to locate her.

According to TMZ, the man's own mother called local police to report that her "unstable" son was in town to see Bristol.

An Alaska judge just granted a one-year protection order covering both Bristol and her son, Tripp. The order can be extended two weeks before ending if she convinces the court that it is necessary.
