Deputies were called to the Malibu area where Cusack lives Sunday night after a cab driver reported that a passenger was refusing to pay a fare for a ride to that area. As deputies approached the scene, they were flagged down by Cusack, who told them that he recognized the woman in the cab and that she had been stalking him.
Emily Leatherman, 33, was booked on suspicion of felony stalking, violating a restraining order and petty theft.
"She was arrested and had violated a previous restraining order taken out against her by Mr. Cusack," said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.
