    A Connecticut man accused of making Rose McGowan's "charmed" life a little less charming has been arrested. 

    Local police searched Louis S. Santo III's Derby home Friday for evidence of alleged threats and harassment of McGowan, who starred in the cable series "Charmed" and movies like "Scream" and "Jawbreakers."

    Cops later arrested Santo on two counts of second-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace.  

    He is being held on $50,000 bond and will appear in court today.

    A California judge granted a temporary restraining order against Santo, 36, last month, prohibiting him from contacting McGowan or her agents. 

    In court documents, the actress, formerly married to shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, said Santo has claimed to love her and threatened violence if he didn't speak with her. 

    In a phone interview with the Associated Press, Santo said he wrote a script for McGowan but that her claims don't make any sense to him. He said he doesn't know if he'll try to fight the restraining order, which requires him to stay at least 200 yards away from Rose. 

    A hearing in California is scheduled for March 11, when McGowan plans to ask the judge to make the order permanent.
