Erbe's Alleged Stalker Charged
An obsessed fan who allegedly spent two years shadowing LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT star Kathryn Erbe has been charged with federal interstate stalking.
Charles Nagel, 36, was arrested in his home city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in March (10) following accusations he bombarded her with creepy love letters and twice turned up at the set of her hit TV show in New York City.
Nagel is alleged to have sent messages to the actress through the mail and using social networking sites, also contacting her 14-year-old daughter and her brother, causing "substantial emotional distress", according to the legal complaint.
Prosecutors charged him with federal interstate stalking at a court hearing in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday (22Jun10). He faces five years in prison if convicted.
