Jennifer Garner has two daughters with husband Ben Affleck
A man has been charged with stalking actors Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, after police said he showed up at their daughter's nursery.
Steven Burky was arrested on Monday at the Los Angeles school where one of the couple's daughters is enrolled.
The 37-year-old was charged with stalking and violating a restraining order protecting the family.
He pleaded not guilty at a court hearing on Thursday and was ordered to be held on $300,000 (£185,000) bail.
The judge also ordered him to stay 500 feet away from Garner, Affleck and their family if released.
Mr Burky was charged with two counts of stalking, considered a serious offence, and two counts of the lesser offence of violating a court order.
Mr Burky must stay 500 feet away from the family
A criminal complaint filed in the case alleges Mr Burky harassed the Hollywood couple and made credible threats that placed both "in reasonable fear" for the safety of their family.
Alias star Ms Garner was granted a restraining order against Mr Burky in November 2008 after she told the court she believed he posed a threat to her and her family.
She claimed he has stalked her since 2002.
The order, which prohibited Mr Burky from being within 100 yards of the family's cars, homes and schools, was due to expire in November 2011.
Jennifer Garner has appeared in the TV series Alias and several films, such as Juno and 13 Going On 30.
Ben Affleck won an Oscar in 1997 with co-star Matt Damon for writing the screenplay to Good Will Hunting.
