Michael David Barrett, the man who allegedly secretly filmed ESPN reporter Erin Andrews nude in various hotel rooms, stalked her around the U.S. to do so.
That's according to federal investigators building their case against him.
The feds claim that Michael Barrett called seven hotels in Columbus, Ohio from January 28-29, 2008, trying to find out where the reporter would be staying.
After striking gold with a Columbus Hotel, the peephole perv got a room next to hers, altered the door of her room and secretly shot the Erin Andrews tape.
Barrett then got on the Internet to send the Erin Andrews nude video to his email account. Bada bing, you've got yourself some authorized, creepy footage.
Michael Barrett is Erin Andrews' alleged peeping tom.
Fast forward to July. He called 14 hotels in Milwaukee, Wisc., and found where she was staying. Again, he checked in, altered the peephole and shot video.
In September, Barrett called a hotel, located Andrews' reservation, requested a room next door and the next day, altered the peephole and filmed her nude.
The email he sent the video to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Eww. He also posted the tape on Google video account, calling it "Erin Andrews Naked Butt."
Classy guy, that Michael Barrett.
Two questions: 1. Does this guy have a job? 2. Why would multiple hotels possibly reveal that a semi-famous guest is staying there, and in what room?!
A statement from Barrett's lawyer reads: "Mr. Barrett would like to express deep regret for the circumstances that caused the issuance of the charges against him today. It is his hope that this matter can be resolved as soon as possible."
