Sandra's husband targeted by crazed fan

Sandra Bullock's husband was attacked by a woman obsessed with the actress at the couple's Orange County home on Sunday morning. Police say that the woman "attempted three or four times to run Jesse James over with her silver Mercedes" while Bullock and James's 10-year-old son watched in horror and then "laid in the driveway and wouldn't move." Luckily, James was not hit during the incident. The woman fled before police arrived at the scene, but was found and taken into custody early on Monday morning. She is being held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Update: According to an Orange County spokesperson, "On several occasions before this incident [Bullock and James] found [the woman] lying in front of their garage door. On Sunday, April 22 around 10:30 a.m., Jesse James went out and asked her to leave. She yelled some obscenities at James, who did not have a cell phone in his hand. When she saw that he did not have a phone, she went to her car. She threw the car in reverse in his direction. He attempted to move out of the way and she kept moving in the vehicle. She attempted to run him over three or four times. She then drove off on the Pacific Coast Highway. James called police and told them that he did not know this woman. He then gave them a detailed description to the police - she drove a silver Mercedes with a white decal on the rear. He described her as a 5'4" female. We searched the area at the time of the incident, but did not locate her. The next morning, we searched the area and spotted her car. We pulled the vehicle over and called James, who then did an in-field lineup where he positively identified her. The case was sent over to the Orange County District Attorney's office where Marcia Valentine might be facing other charges besides assault with a deadly weapon. Bail was set at $25,000 and she bailed out. She lives nearby in Huntington Beach and she is due back on May 22."
