No, your ex's mother should not have done this, you should file a complaint with the police department regarding this behavior/conduct.
I also recommend that you retain an attorney to represent you with regard to the protection order (these are usually relatively simple matters for an attorney to handle - so the cost is relatively small in comparison to other legal proceedings), but it is very important to have them dealt with aggressively as a protective order can have significant repercussions outside of just the scope of the "stay away" or protection order (it affects your right to purchase firearms, it can be used in future legal proceedings, it will appear in background checks, etc.).
