Actor Colin Farrell was confronted by a woman who leapt up from the audience as he was taping an episode of “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on NBC in Los Angeles, a police spokesman said Friday.

No one was hurt during the incident, which happened Thursday afternoon and was initially thought to be part of a skit, Sgt. Neil Gunn of the Burbank Police Dept. told Reuters.

When it became clear that her intentions were less than friendly, the woman was hustled away by the show’s security staff. A policeman on the scene advised her not to come back or she would be arrested for trespassing, Gunn said.

Entertainment gossip TV show “Access Hollywood” identified the woman as Dessarae Bradford. It said she had unsuccessfully alleged in a small-claims lawsuit that Farrell stalked her with inappropriate calls and text messages.

Access Hollywood, quoting an audience member, said the woman shouted at Farrell, “I’ll see you in court,” and Farrell replied, “You’re insane.”

Farrell was promoting his appearance in the upcoming movie ”Miami Vice,” and showed up a few hours later at the film’s world premiere. At the after-party, he was flanked by security guards, standard procedure for such events.
