We never thought we'd see this day!
Father Time has officially beaten Clint Eastwood!
The actor had to get an order of protection against a home invader pretending to be his son!
We remember when Clint would've taken care of this himself back in the day!
Just kidding - he plays a badass in movies aka it's fiction.
All joking aside - this seems like a serious matter!
Here's what the actor said to a court:
“Eric James Chishum has an extensive rap sheet that includes attempted murder, burglary, assault and narcotics and weapons charges. As a transient, his locations and movements are difficult to predict or monitor. [Chishum has] shown little regard for the law and the threat he presents to me is immediate.”
So what exactly happened that drove Mr. Eastwood to seek an order of protection against the individual?
We'll let Mr. Eastwood tell you himself!
Here's what he said:
"Mr. Chishum unlawfully entered the private gated community of Tehama in Monterey County, California, in an attempt to gain access to me, Clint Eastwood. When confronted by Tehama security personnel, Mr. Chisum claimed to be my son and refused to leave the premises. Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, secured and arrested Mr. Chisum for trespass and probation violations. Mr Chisum continued to claim that he was my son throughout the process of arrest. Mr. Chisum in fact is not my son.”
This Mr. Chishum broke into Mr. Eastwood's home and pretended to be his son!
We know Mr. Eastwood is old, but he's not old enough where he couldn't recognize his own son!
So crazy! Stay safe out there!
