EAGLES guitarist Joe Walsh has been granted a restraining order against an elderly man who allegedly threatened to kill him.
The rocker asked a judge to ban his neighbour Nassar Adhoot, who is in his 70s, from coming near him after the man allegedly trespassed on his property last month (10) and attacked his personal assistant with a block of wood.
In legal documents, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Walsh claimed Adhoot then shouted out, "You tell Joe Walsh I'm going to kill him. I'm going to shoot him."
On Monday (07Jun10) Adhoot failed to appear in court and a judge granted Walsh the restraining order, banning him from approaching the star, reports TMZ.com.
Adhoot was also ordered to pay more than $1,500 (£1,000) in legal fees.
The actor plays the Queen frontman in the forthcoming movie 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
The filmmaker departed the project over differing 'visions'.
