(LOS ANGELES) -- James Rainford, the man who punched Paris Hilton's boyfriend Cy Waits outside a Van Nuys, California courthouse Wednesday, is going to jail.
TMZ reports a judge has ordered Rainford behind bars for 227 days because of the attack, which took place as Waits and Hilton were headed to testify against a different stalker. After he was subdued by security, Rainford claimed he had asked Hilton to marry her and she had agreed. Rainford was arrested last October trying to break into Hilton's home by sneaking onto her property on a bicycle.
The judge also sentenced Rainford to three years of informal probation, according to TMZ, and ordered him to stay away from Waits after he's released.
