Michael Lee Babb, 34, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of stalking and making criminal threats against his ex-wife in Waterford.
The Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department reported that Babb sent threatening text messages to the victim. While a deputy was at her home in the River Pointe gated community, Babb showed up and quickly left, the report said.
Babb was found a short time later while pulling into his driveway, the report said. It noted that this was the second time in the past month that he was arrested on these charges.
Babb remained in the Stanislaus County Jail on Sunday night with bail set at $51,550.
