Jodie Sweetin's ex-fiancé was arrested for the third time in one week

Things are getting scary between Jodie Sweetin and her ex-fiancé, Justin Hodak.

Sweetin took out a temporary restraining order against Hodak after an argument they had allegedly turned violent, and court papers alleged Hodak "engaged in violent arguments with Sweetin in which he threw objects at her." Now, he's been arrested — for the third time in a week — for violating the order.

Court papers filed by Sweetin allege that after the pair broke up, Hodak showed up unannounced at the Warner Bros. lot where she was working, "demanding to see her and engaging in a dispute with the security guards there. He also waited for Sweetin to confront her at her children’s school."

This comes just a week after Sweetin and Hodak announced their split. They got engaged in January 2016 after two years of dating.

In her court filings, Sweetin claimed that Hodak became abusive, suicidal and addicted to drugs at the end of their relationship. The Fuller House actress claimed he showed up without warning at her home on March 18 and "said he was going to take a 9 millimeter pistol with him and use it to kill himself."

She also alleged he had been abusing steroids and testosterone supplements, which made his bad temper worse, and that the night he threatened suicide, he had been drinking and smoking marijuana.

Sweetin has two children from previous relationships, 9-year-old Zoie and 6-year-old Beatrix. We only hope they can all stay safe while they work through this scary split.
