A judge has ordered Johnny Depp to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife, actress Amber Heard.

Heard said in a sworn declaration that Depp threw her cell phone at her during a fight Saturday, striking her cheek and eye. She submitted a picture of her bruised face when she applied for a restraining order Friday.
