Alec Baldwin's stalker has been charged with violating the protection order against her.

Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin, 40, was taken away in handcuffs from a Lower Manhattan court in New York on Tuesday (27.11.12) after it was revealed she had been tweeting about the '30 Rock' actor and his wife Hilaria Baldwin.

One tweet sent on November 8, which she tagged Hilaria in, said: ''How Hilaria Baldwin beZEN, peaceful yogi, Alec Baldwin keep my INJUSTICE+break my life? (sic)''.

Her lawyer Maurice Sercarz, also quit after revealing she owes him money and has not been taking his advice.

According to the New York Post, he told the judge: ''Miss Sabourin feels it is a good idea to Tweet, to appear on television and discuss the case in the media contrary to my advice.''

Genevieve also claimed she was being unfairly punished, saying: ''I've been vilified around the world more than is possible to handle in this case.

''I'm being treated like a guilty person. This has destroyed my life.''

She was taken to the 20th Precinct for processing and will return to the Lower Manhattan courthouse for booking and arraignment on new charges.
