Transformers - Newton Charged With Breaching Court Order

Australian actor MATTHEW NEWTON has been charged with breaching a court order banning him from contacting his former fiancee, TRANSFORMERS star RACHAEL TAYLOR.
Newton was arrested in the Kings Cross area of Sydney on Tuesday afternoon (08Feb11) after allegedly contacting Taylor by phone over the weekend (05-06Feb11), according to the AAP.
Taylor's lawyer went to court last year (10) to apply for an apprehended violence order (AVO) against the star, after Taylor accused Newton of several "unprovoked violent assaults" during a vacation in Europe in August (10).
They subsequently broke off their engagement and magistrates in Sydney officially sanctioned the AVO, which prevents Newton from approaching or contacting Taylor unless it is through lawyers. He is also banned from entering buildings where she lives or works and from approaching her family.
Newton faces two years behind bars if he is deemed to have breached the terms of the agreement.
He was granted bail after his arrest on Tuesday and is due to appear before Downing Centre Local Court on 2 March (11).
