Lisa Vanderpump Gets Emergency Restraining Order After Crazed Fan Verbally Threatens Her At PUMP Restaurant!

Last week, Lisa Vanderpump was granted an emergency restraining order after she was threatened by a crazed fan. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star was meeting customers at her West Hollywood restaurant, Pump when she was confronted by Kendrick Rustad on Saturday night, according to The Daily Mail.

The restaurant was packed at the time, with multiple sources revealed to the publication that Rustad suddenly started shouting obscenities after spotting LVP at around 9pm.

"He was spitting and screaming and extremely aggressive,' the source told The Daily Mail, adding that Rustad explicitly threatened the mother-of-two's personal safety, despite not being previously known to the Bravo reality star.

Apparently, Lisa summoned security, who were at the scene within seconds, moving Rustad outside to the sidewalk, where he is said to have lashed out, kicking out at a crowd of onlookers who filmed the disturbance.

Police officers arrived quickly and spent 45 minutes attempting to subdue Rustad, who continued to scream abuse and spit, the source said.

"He was put in the back of the car and was trying to kick the window out, so they had to move him out of the vehicle and onto a stretcher-type thing," the source explained.

Rustad was arrested and booked on a misdemeanor charge, before being released on $250 bail.

An emergency restraining order was granted banning Rustad from within 100 feet of Lisa and Ken's multiple business interests - including Pump, Sur and new bar TomTom. The couple intend to return to court on Friday to extend the restraining order, according to The Daily Mail.

She was said to be too 'deeply stressed' by the unprecedented confrontation to comment, but family friend Rich Aguiar said she had been enjoying a small dinner when the incident happened.

"I was worried for her," Aguiar told the publication, who had been part of the family dinner party. 'She's so welcoming and open. To see somebody who was that aggressive was very disturbing.

Aguiar praised the West Hollywood police department for their quick response, saying that multiple officers were at the scene within minutes.

"Normally we have a very safe and friendly environment in Pump and elsewhere in West Hollywood. We hope this man gets the help he needs," Lisa's restaurant Pump said in a statement.
