Jack Jordan, the Maryland man convicted of stalking Uma Thurman in 2008, is back in police custody after allegedly trying to contact Thurman in late October, according to the New York Daily News:

The former mental patient, who lives in Maryland, called Thurman's Manhattan office on Oct. 29 and was rebuffed by an assistant when he demanded to speak to the actress.
Jordan, 39, reportedly insisted that Thurman's boyfriend "was not good enough" and that she should marry him instread. He was trashing Swiss financier Arpad Busson, whom Thurman has dated on and off since 2007.
A day later, Jordan called Thurman's cell phone and was once again told to buzz off by an assistant, the sources said. He was arrested in Maryland just before Thanksgiving.

A police source tells that Jordan was literally Googling Thurman's name when they arrived to arrest him. He was sentenced to three years probation for stalking Thurman in 2008 and, at the time, the judge issued a five-year order for protection, forbidding him from having any form of contact with Thurman.

"I'm terrified of being incarcerated again,” said Jordan in 2008 prior to his sentencing. "My greatest wish is that I had known sooner that I was putting fear into the heart" of Thurman.
