A man accused of stalking Sophie Monk has been freed following his arrest earlier this week (beg10Nov14) for breaking bail conditions for a third time.

The Date Movie star originally contacted the police to report obsessed fan James MCCabe in December (13) after he allegedly sent a series of death threats to the actress and her family.

MCCabe, 31, who denied a charge of stalking, was ordered to stay away from Monk as part of a court-issued Apprehended Violence Order (Avo), but he was back in police custody on Monday (10Nov14) for allegedly breaking the rules by contacting Monk via social networking sites.

He appeared in court in Tasmania on Tuesday (11Nov14) and was released on bail. The latest incident follows two previous alleged breaches of the court protection order.
