STAR TREK: VOYAGER star ROBERT PICARDO boldly told to NOT go anywhere near his estranged wife!
Actor Robert Picardo – the holographic doctor on the ’90s hit series “Star Trek: Voyager” – may want Captain Janeway to beam him up to avoid a nasty divorce battle!
A judge has ordered Picardo, 60, to stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife, and The National ENQUIRER can reveal the inside story behind the violent fight that led to his legal woes.
Sources say cops were called to the Pasadena, Calif., home that Picardo shares with his wife, Linda Pawlik, on July 4, after someone called 911 and then hung up.
She told officers that Picardo allegedly “hit” her during an argument, said a source.
“She was initially treated at the scene for an injury, but required additional care at the hospital,” the source told The ENQUIRER.
“Her husband had left, despite her requests for him to take her to the hospital. Paramedics were summoned.”
According to official documents obtained by The ENQUIRER, “after an argument (verbal), Pawlik tossed a metal ashtray at Picardo.
“Picardo hit Pawlik approximately two times on her right hand and arm, causing prior sutures on the right hand to open.”
Pawlik claimed she suffered “arterial bleeding in and trauma” to her previously injured right hand, according to legal documents. She asked a judge to grant an emergency protective order against Picardo, citing “escalating conflict leading to a violent incident.”
The order was granted, and on July 9, a judge extended the restraining order against Picardo until July 30.
The actor was ordered to have no contact with Pawlik, who asked the court to force him to reimburse her medical bills. The source said Picardo was denied a restraining order against Pawlik.
The couple married in 1984 and have two grown daughters. Picardo, who also starred in the sci-fi TV series “Stargate: Atlantis” and “Stargate SG-1,” filed for divorce in 2012.
Pawlik asked the judge to restrain Picardo “from involving our two adult children as if they are a party to this present litigation.”
