Filming on Mischa Barton's new movie Deserted was halted after a man on the run from police burst onto the set.

The former O.C. star was shooting a scene with Sons of Anarchy actress Winter Ave Zoli outside a bar in Culver City, California earlier this month (Jan15) when a stranger approached them.

Police officers in hot pursuit arrived shortly afterwards, handcuffing the man and taking him into custody on suspicion of assault.

According to Tmz.com, filming resumed once the intruder had been removed from the scene.
