Michael David Barrett, 48, was arrested in connection with a peeping tom case involving ESPN reporter Erin Andrews. Barrett was arrested at Chicago O’Hare International Airport for allegedly videotaping the reporter walking around naked in a number of hotel rooms without her knowledge, reports TMZ.
Barrett allegedly stalked Andrews “with the intent to harass, to place under surveillance with intent to harass and intimidate, and to cause substantial emotional distress to a person in another state,” the FBI reported.
At least six different tapes shot with a peephole camera of Andrews walking around nude in hotel rooms surfaced in July.
Andrews’s lawyer, Marshall Grossman, says Barrett contacted hotels to gain information he used to locate the reporter and her hotel room. He would then remove the peepholes from the doors of the rooms and insert a camera.
The complaint says Andrews was “having trouble breathing and felt sick all of the time,” due to the stress caused by the tapes. “She was concerned there might be more video and wanted to vomit just thinking about it.”
