An ex-boyfriend of actress Rosa Salazar has successfully obtained a restraining order against her, forcing her to keep a minimum distance of 100 yards from him.
Sam Setzer claimed the Canadian entertainer, 32, has exhibited disturbing behavior toward him since they parted ways March 19 after a month of dating, according to TMZ.
The 5ft3 star, who played the role of Maria on American Horror Story's first season in 2011, was accused by Setzer of going to his house uninvited around midnight, repeatedly ringing his doorbell and yelling so loud nearby residents were alarmed, the outlet reported.

Setzer told the court that he felt Salazar, who's been seen in projects such as CHIPS, The Kindergarten Teacher and the TV program Parenthood, was likely under the influence of a substance during the incident.
Salazar has also bombarded Setzer with texts and phone calls, he told the court.
Setzer said in court docs that Salazar threatened she would tell police that he assaulted her, at which point he notified authorities of the issues at hand.
Earlier this year, Salazar appeared at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where she shared her thoughts on the importance of diversity in storytelling and independent film in a segment for Adobe.

'I feel so passionately about diverse voices ... because in the past you have one viewpoint, one perspective being thrust on an audience,' she said. 'And its important because there are so many different perspectives, there are so many different kind of voices that should be heard.'
She continued: 'If you don't have those diverse stories than you have this myopic - often misogynistic or even racist - viewpoint. What we do here at Sundance is bring all of the voices, all of the viewpoints and all of the stories, so we can share that with other people like us.'
The actress appears in the forthcoming Robert Rodriguez film Alita: Battle Angel alongside Oscar winners Jennifer Connelly and Christoph Waltz. It hits theaters December 21.
