LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A man has been ordered to stand trial for allegedly stalking and threatening ``NYPD Blue'' actress Andrea Thompson and her child.
Gianluigi Assennato, 34, of West Los Angeles will face one count of stalking and three counts of making terrorist threats against Thompson, all felonies, prosecutors said Thursday.
Ms. Thompson, of Beverly Hills, alleged that Assennato slashed her tires, phoned verbal threats and made in-person threats of violence against her.
The 38-year-old actress currently stars as Detective Jill Kirkendall on ABC's ``NYPD Blue.'' She also has had roles on ``Babylon 5,'' ``JAG'' and ``Falcon Crest.''
