Christopher Dorner’s former girlfriend described the police officer-turned-fugitive as a ‘severely and emotionally disturbed person’ in court documents filed after they broke up 2006.

Ariana Williams’ claims are part of the documents in a restraining order that Dorner was seeking.


The former LAPD officer said in the restraining order request that Williams annoyed and harassed him by phone and in a letter. The restraining order was ultimately denied.

Williams, who wrote that she met Dorner at a sporting goods store, posted information about Dorner on, an online site sometimes referred to as a relationship ‘credit check’ for women, court documents show.

On the site, the former girlfriend posted Dorner’s LAPD badge number and detailed her 6-week dating experience with him, according to court documents.

‘Anyway just be careful because this guy is a police officer and he will probably think that he can get away with anything,’ she wrote on the site.

‘He is super paranoid always thinking somebody’s out to get him.’

‘If you value your sanity, stay away from this guy,’ she wrote.

Dorner is now wanted in connection with a double homicide in Irvine on Sunday and the shooting of three police officers, one fatally, in Riverside County on Thursday. Authorities described him as ‘armed and extremely dangerous,’ and alerts about him were issued across California and in Nevada as federal, state and local authorities intensified their search.
