STAR BALDWIN'S STALKER JAILED FOR NET ABUSE; Actress breaches restraining order over tweets.

Byline: SAM HAMILTON Showbiz Reporter

AN actress accused of stalking Alec Baldwin has been jailed for breaching a restraining order.

Earlier this year a judge ordered Genevieve Sabourin to stay away from Baldwin following her arrest on harassment charges.

However, recent news reports said she had been tweeting angry comments about Baldwin's yoga instructor wife Hilaria Thomas, whom he married in June.

On Tuesday, directing the tweets to Thomas' Twitter feed, she wrote: "Alec Baldwin wife Hilaria REAL name: Hilary Hayward-Thomas. LIED wile call 911 on me w her false name. I'll file 4felony."

And on Tuesday cops arrested Sabourin at a Manhattan courthouse for violating an order of protection barring her from contacting 30 Rock star Baldwin and Hilaria.

Baldwin, 54, and Sabourin met on the set of the 2002 sci-fi comedy The Adventures Of Pluto Nash in which he had a cameo and she was a publicist.

In an original complaint he added they had dinner together in 2010 "just to give her career advice".

Police surprised the Canadian actress by locking her up again at the close of an otherwise routine court appearance on Tuesday.

She was there after her lawyer asked to be taken off the case.

Authorities would not discuss why Sabourin was being detained again.

MESSAGES As she was led away in handcuffs, she asked: "Why am I being arrested?" Defence attorney Rick Pasacreta confirmed his client was back in custody but said he had not been informed of any new charges.

Reports added there was no immediate response to messages left with the New York Police Department.

Prosecutors would only say Sabourin was due back in court.

Following the actress' arrest on misdemeanour stalking and harassment charges in April, a judge released her and issued the temporary order of protection for Baldwin.

Sabourin lives in Quebec and has acted in television and film.

Police originally arrested her after authorities added she had implored Baldwin to see her and to marry her in emails sent only days after he became engaged to Thomas.

A complaint said one of Sabourin's messages envisioned Baldwin as her future "husband" while another described "creating Genevieve Baldwin".

Authorities added she also showed up at a screening he was hosting and at his apartment building.

Court documents claimed she told police: "I just came over to see Alec because I need to speak with him."

Another lawyer for Sabourin had said his client and Baldwin had a two-year relationship and that she had a "legitimate purpose" for contacting him.

Baldwin was previously married to actress Kim Basinger and they have a daughter, Ireland, 16.
