Nicolas Cage stalker ordered to undergo rehab
A man who broke into the home of Nicolas Cage and was caught by the actor wearing only a leather jacket was ordered to undergo six months rehabilitation after admitting stalking on Thursday.
Robert Furo was given credit for time served behind bars since his arrest in Cage's home in Newport Beach, 80 kilometers (50 miles) south of Los Angeles, in October last year.
Furo's sentence comprises one-month in lockdown and five months in a residential home, the Orange County District Attorney's Office said.
He was also ordered to have no direct or indirect contact with the Oscar-winning star and must remain at least 100 yards from the actor's family.
Furo was arrested after being confronted by Cage inside his home in the middle of the night. Cage had awoke to discover Furo naked except for one of his jackets before he escorted Furo outside without a struggle.
Cage, who won an Oscar for "Leaving Las Vegas" in 1995, is a veteran of more than 40 movies and is the nephew of film director Francis Ford Coppola.
He is currently starring in box-office hit "National Treasure: Book of Secrets." ( AFP )
