ICE arrested a man for allegedly stalking model Kendall Jenner.

The man, identified as 38-year-old John Ford, is a Canadian citizen who overstayed his non-immigrant B-2 visa, which allowed him to stay in the U.S. for six months.

TMZ reports that Ford climbed a hill and ended up in Jenner’s swimming pool in October. Shortly thereafter, he allegedly came back and ended up on her porch.

 


ICE said if he wasn’t deported, the situation could have turned tragic.

"This timely arrest could very well have prevented a violent crime. Our special agents acted quickly on this tip to ensure that this obsessive behavior didn't escalate to become a tragedy," an ICE spokesman told TMZ.

Ford is currently in ICE custody in El Paso, Texas, awaiting a deportation hearing.

The Kardashian-Jenner family released a statement, saying, “We are extremely appreciative of the hard work by the Los Angeles Police Dept. and ICE, whose swift response and professionalism led to this man's apprehension. His actions have not only had a severe impact on Kendall's life, but the entire family's sense of security, causing us to fear for Kendall's safety as well as our own. Knowing this individual is in custody gives us peace of mind."
