LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sharon Stone obtained a restraining order Thursday against a man who Los Angeles police say was found in her home earlier this month, claiming the home was given to him by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Bradly Gooden, who a police detective described in court filings as delusional and possibly schizophrenic, was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Stone’s house and her three children. The actress’ filings state Gooden was found trespassing at her home on Feb. 11 and police placed him on a psychiatric hold.

He was released earlier this week, the filings state.

Los Angeles Police Department Detective Jeff Dunn wrote in a declaration that Gooden believes Stone’s home was given to him by Clinton and that he penned the screenplay for the Academy Award-nominated film “The King’s Speech.”

“It is my professional opinion that Mr. Gooden has a delusional and abnormal fixation on Ms. Stone and her property, and that he poses a real security concern, credible threat of violence, and imminent danger to the health and welfare of Ms. Stone and, potentially, her minor children,” Dunn wrote.

Stone also submitted a sworn statement that she was afraid of Gooden, who she has never met.

The restraining order was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.

Speaking on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” Stone called Gooden “mentally ill,” and said she was not home at the time he was found trespassing.

“He is currently in a lockdown of a psychiatric unit, so we feel safe,” Stone said in a clip of the interview posted on CNN’s website Thursday night.

With fame, “you get all kinds of fans and all kinds of incidents,” Stone said, but “people are in place and understand what to do.”

Stone is perhaps best-known for her role in the thriller “Basic Instinct” and received an Oscar nomination for her role in “Casino” in 1995.
