Alleged stalker of David Caruso in custody

Posted on

In a day unfortunately rife with fan-gone-wrong stories, the Associated Press reports this afternoon that an Austrian woman accused of stalking and threatening to kill CSI: Miami actor David Caruso is in custody in Vienna, after being arrested in Mexico several weeks ago on immigration charges and deported back to her homeland. If convicted, she could spend up to three years behind bars.

The alleged stalker, identified only as a female in her early 40s, reportedly sent more than 100 letters to the star of the CBS crime show, then sent death threats when he refused to give her an autograph. A court-appointed psychiatrist subesquently testified that the suspect has a “profound personality disorder.” A trial date had not yet been set.
