*Gary Dourdan’s ex-girlfriend has filed for a restraining order, claiming he punched her in the face and broke her nose, reports TMZ.

Nicole Vail Cannizzaro claims in the documents, obtained by TMZ, she had broken up with the former “CSI” star in May “due to his excessive drug use, which only worsened after cutting off communication with him.”

Nicole claims Gary put recording devices in her home and attempted to break in. She says Sunday night he punched her in the face and broke her nose.  Nicole says she ran to the back alley, where a neighbor called 911. Gary was arrested for felony battery but is now out on bail.

Nicole is now asking that the actor stay 100 yards away from her and her two dogs, Charlie and Chanel.

A hearing for the restraining order is set for later this month, reports TMZ. Nicole apparently got an emergency protective order from the cops, but it expires next week.
