Beau to Texting Reporters: Leave Me Alone!

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Fri, May 29, 2009 at 3:34 PM

The O just reported that a judge this afternoon denied Beau Breedlove's request for a restraining order against Oregonian reporter Brent Walth. Breedlove apparently got fed up with Walth constantly texting him about the scandal and feared it could negatively affect Walth's reporting and the public perception of Breedlove. The judge denied the restraining order because a restraining order requires the threat of physical violence not just, uh, the fear that some text messages will make people not like you.

Breedlove was sour on reporters a few months ago during his naked interview in Unzipped (which did not negatively affect his public perception at all...) and expressed as much to Matt Davis with his memorable succinct signature.
