Could Taryn Manning's year get any get any worse?

Just weeks after the Orange is the New Black star was arrested for allegedly assaulting makeup artist Holly Hartman, the actress found herself back in police custody accused of threatening to kill a former close friend.

The 36-year-old star, best known for playing Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett in the hit Netflix show, had been ordered to stay away from Jeanine Heller after a judge issued a mutual domestic restraining order for the two women.

TMZ reported that Manning violated the terms of the restraining order by allegedly sending criminal threats to Heller via text message and social media. As she failed to show up to court, the judge cited her for contempt and a warrant was put out for her arrest.

In an interesting twist, it has also emerged that one-time pal Heller has also been previously arrested for violating the order by stalking Manning via texts and emails.

But Manning has since taken to Twitter to protest her innocence in a string of posts.

Back in October, Manning, whose movie credits include 8 Mile and Hustle & Flow, was detained for allegedly assaulting Hartman in a New York hotel room. The charges were later dropped.
