Lisa Vanderpump was granted an emergency restraining order against 47-year-old Kendrick Rusted after he showed up to her West Hollywood restaurant, Pump, and unleashed a verbal attack on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.
According to a new report, Lisa, who also stars on Vanderpump Rules, was enjoying a meal with her family and friends on Saturday night when the “crazed” Kendrick bombarded her at around 9 p.m. and began shouting obscenities her way.
“He was spitting and screaming and extremely aggressive,” a source told the Daily Mail on July 23, adding that Kendrick threatened the safety of Lisa.
As the terrifying ordeal played out, Lisa summoned her security team and within minutes, Kendrick was removed from the restaurant but, unfortunately, his antics were far from over. At that point, the man began lashing out at Lisa’s security team and attempted to kick a group of onlookers who were filming his outrageous behavior.
A short time later, the West Hollywood Police Department arrived to the scene, where they spent a reported 45 minutes attempting to subdue the man, who screamed profanities and spat throughout the ordeal.
“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.
Kendrick was arrested and booked for a misdemeanor charge but was later released on $250 bail.
Following the ordeal, Lisa was granted an emergency restraining order against Kendrick, which is also in place for her and her husband Ken Todd‘s many businesses in the area, including Pump, SUR Restaurant, and Tom Tom.
They intend to have the order extended in court on Friday.
Lisa was said to be “deeply stressed” by the situation she endured and according to family friend Rich Aguiar, who was eating with the reality star and restaurateur when Kendrick lashed out, he is quite worried for her.
“She’s so welcoming and open. To see somebody who was that aggressive was very disturbing,” he said.
In a statement to the Daily Mail, Pump said, “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.”
According to a new report by Radar Online, TomTom will officially open to the public on August 1st.
