Creepy Michael David Barrett stalked Erin Andrews last year. He ended up costing ESPN a lot of money in extra security costs for its employee as a result.

Money the network wants back.

ESPN wants the perv who shot the peephole video of Erin Andrews nude to cough up more than $300,000 to help pay for the mess he's caused everyone.

Andrews, a sideline reporter for ESPN and current Dancing with the Stars hopeful, received an unrelated round of death threats earlier this year as well.

DANCING HEAT: Erin Andrews' profile has only grown since.

According to federal documents filed yesterday in California, the network claims they have to cough up a ton of cash to pay for extra security for Andrews.

ESPN also claims they incurred losses "from assisting the government in its investigation" and demands Barrett pay back ALL of the $327,442.27.

Michael David Barrett pleaded guilty to one count of being a dirty individual stalking Andrews last year and began serving a 30-month sentence May 3.

A hearing on the ESPN matter is set for June 7.

It's not easy being a gorgeous ESPN sideline reporter.

You may get paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Dancing with the Stars, but you'll also get nakedly peeped at by a shady dude in the hotel room next door to you.

Now, news has broken of an even more dangerous situation involving Erin Andrews: multiple sources confirm that a man from Virginia has been sending threatening emails to her since September.

Andrews and her attorney, Marshall Grossman, only recently discovered the messages existed, as they were sent to The Dan Patrick Show (an ESPN program) and kept from Erin until this week.

The emails focus on the case of Michael David Barrett, who was sentenced last month to over two years in federal prison for secretly shooting nude videos of Andrews.

"He refers to Barrett in his e-mail in a way to make clear to us that situation had some influence," Grossman said, adding that the FBI has been notified.

Erin and Maksim

Security on Dancing with the Stars will be increased for Andrews. Why? Just look at how scary and disgusting a few of the emails are:

  • "Dear Dan: I hope Erin Andrews gets murdered in L.A." (3/29/10)
  • "I hope she gets shot in the face. I would love to see if she can dance away from a hail of gunfire. That would really make my day." (3/26/10)
  • "I would love to get close enough to her to show her my suicide vest." (3/14/10)

We'll keep readers apprised of this revolting story as more revelations come to light.

Zachary Loring is not a fellow you would term, say, normal.

A judge pretty much told Audrina Patridge's stalker as much.

Audrina, Lauren and Lauren

Amazingly, you go off on one profanity-laced tirade in open court and you end up a prime candidate for a psychiatric evaluation. Who knew? Well, besides DMX?

That's precisely what happened to the dude harassing Audrina Patridge after a judge-directed verbal lambasting resulted in a suspension of his criminal case.

Zachary Loring, who's been loitering at the home of Audrina multiple times, tried to enter a guilty plea to one count of felony stalking The Hills star. He tried.

His attorney then objected, and after the judge sided with the lawyer and refused to accept the plea, Loring absolutely erupted, tearing the judge a new one.

Always prudent. He also went off on a judge last month too.

Immediately after the flare-up, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William Ryan suspended the hearing, ordered Loring to undergo no less than two evaluations.

He was then returned to police custody, where he is being held on $150,000 bail. A competency hearing is set for April 13. We wouldn't bet on him passing.

"You are a sexual predator, a sexual deviant. They should lock you up."

With these words, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews tore into Michael David Barrett, the stalker who pleaded guilty in December to following her to at least three cities and shooting nude videos of her through hotel peepholes without her consent.

"You violated me and you violated all women," Erin said told the total creep and now convicted stalker, who was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for videotaping her.

The Illinois insurance executive gave a tearful apology for the peephole video of Erin Andrews nude, but it fell upon deaf ears and was harshly rebuked by his victim.

In fact, Andrews urged q judge at the hearing to levy an even harsher sentence against Barrett and said that she now fears for her life every time she enters a hotel.

After the sentencing, she said, "Thirty months isn't enough."

NOT ENOUGH: Erin says the perv's 30-month sentence doled out yesterday is not nearly long enough for his creepy behavior. We find it hard to argue with her there.

Michael Barrett, who has until May 3 to surrender, was ordered to have supervised probation for three years after his release and is prohibited from contacting Erin.

He will not be allowed to stay in a hotel without approval of a probation officer and if he accepts employment somewhere, Andrews will be notified by the court.

You can watch Erin Andrews in less creepy fashion beginning next week, when she joins the cast of Dancing with the Stars. Last week, we sized up her chances.

Apparent nut job Charles Pearson has been apprehended for allegedly stalking quasi-celebrity Dr. Drew Pinsky. We know, Dr. Drew Pinsky has a stalker?

Most stalking articles involve hot girls getting stalked (Audrina Patridge), pretending to be stalked (Tila Tequila) or doing the stalking (Vienna Girardi).

This one? Just plain weird.

Pearson was booked for felony stalking after he was arrested at Pierce College in Woodland Hills. Dr. Drew's security team pinpointed his location there.

The reason? He posted said location on his own site. Take note, young readers. Don't post incriminating info online, especially if you're stalking Dr. Drew.

Pearson's bail has been set at $150,000. Here's his mug shot ...

Charles Pearson

Dr. Drew is no longer at risk from this stable individual.

Dr. Drew's team of cyber-security experts monitored and ultimately nabbed the alleged stalker yesterday after he made his location at the college available.

Pinsky's peeps spotted the post and immediately contacted cops at the Pasadena Police Department ... who then alerted sheriff's deputies at the college.

Sources say a number of police officers and school security showed up to the library shortly after, cleared out a bunch of people and moved on Pearson.

He was supposedly very cooperative, at least.

Guy sounds like a troubled fella in need of help. His ex, Sandra Obagi, obtained a restraining order in 2007, claiming he threatened her life, allegedly saying:

"I have guns and I'm not afraid to use them."

Always words you long to hear from a guy.

Zachary Loring, the lunatic Audrina Patridge stalker facing felony stalking and three misdemeanor charges for showing up at her home, appeared in court this week.

It was an appearance unlike any the judge will ever see again.

Having violated a restraining order against him for previously delivered violent letters and drawings to The Hills star, Loring made one thing very clear Tuesday:

He's better off in jail, or in an institution, than on the street.

Stalking Audzo

First, Loring tried to contradict his own lawyer’s plea of not guilty. The judge told him to be quiet, after which the accused stalker flicked his tongue and flipped the bird.

The attorney repeated his objection to the presence of a camera in the courtroom, while at the same time Loring asked either the lawyer or the judge this:

"How many donuts did you eat to day? You have bacon sprinkles on that?”

Definitely original and a good way to appear sympathetic before officials.

It got worse. Zachary Loring complained the court was “wasting [his] f*%kin’ time” and began pretending to jerk off into the camera. Classy, very stable fellow, this one.

Follow the jump for a clip of this before the camera was shut off ...

This is pretty messed up.

The guy Audrina Patridge got a permanent restraining order against for stalking her last year was arrested Friday for doing so again ... at her house.

Audrina: MTV Host

Someone inside The Hills star's house called 911 after Zachary Loring allegedly started pounding on her front door and kept ringing the doorbell. Scary.

Audrina Patridge was, in fact, home at the time of the incident, and Loring was in possession of a large knife when he was arrested. Even scarier.

Audrina Patridge has had trouble with this guy before.

Police showed up and arrested Zachary Loring, who was booked for felony stalking and misdemeanor vandalism and being held on $160,000 bail.

Back in September, Audrina claimed Loring kept showing up and giving her creepy poems and drawings, including one of a woman being hanged.

Dude, get a life. And some dating advice. That's not the way to make her love you. When like roses and chocolate, not knives and death drawings.

Vienna Girardi is one of two women left on The Bachelor. As she battles with Tenley Molzahn for the final rose, America learns one shady thing about her after another.

Yesterday, we reported that The Bachelor bad girl was involved with a secret boyfriend before, during and since returning home from taping the ABC non-reality show.

While Vienna Girardi has been accused of stalking her ex, Brian Lee Smith, he personally was arrested in October of last year for trespassing at her parents' home.

Smith was arrested oshortly before Vienna left to film The Bachelor. A Girardi source says the two are over, and Smith was refusing to let go of their relationship.

Here's the mug shot of this classy fella ...

Vienna Girardi's ex: Even crazier than she is!

Vienna has been accused of not leaving Smith and his new girlfriend alone since she returned home from taping The Bachelor. But a source close to her says, on the contrary, that Vienna has not seen Brian since he was arrested in her yard.

The source claims that Smith simply could not accept they were over and was even banging on the front door at Vienna's parents house the night he was arrested.

As for Vienna's take on the drama? "She's pretty much over it,” the source said.

The friend claims that when Vienna found out in the summer of 2009 that she was going to be a contestant on The Bachelor, she decided to break up with Smith.

That's when she set her sights on Jake Pavelka. But does she deserve him?!

Who should Jake choose on the season finale?

Lying about pregnancy is sooooo last week. The new attention-grabbing fad?

Inventing a stalker! Isn't that right, Tila Tequila?

With buzz dying down over her fake baby, the extraordinarily troubled celebrity has resorted to a new story in order to remain in the news: someone is supposedly stalking her.

Police cars were summoned to Tila's San Fernando Valley house yesterday, as they responded to a distress call from the reality TV star. She claimed there was a man in a car sitting outside her property and that he had been there for two weeks.

Dangerous Kiss

In a stunning turn of events, though, officers searched the scene and found no trace of anyone. But Tila insists she's telling the truth.

"There's been a psycho stalker and he's getting closer to my door and tried to get in," she lied to Radar Online. "He's been sitting in the rain for days trying to say hi to me. He put his eye up to my door and was trying to peek in."

Hmmm... we wonder if he saw her making love to her baby daddy in that case.

Last April, Tequila claimed someone broke into her home and posted messages on her Twitter account. Police were suspicious because the messages were actually coherent and full of truth, but no arrests were made.

Kim Kardashian took time out from her career as a professional celebrity to obtain a restraining order against an alleged stalker, Dennis Shaun Bowman.

This guy is delusional and believes he's dating her, says Kim, who notes that her obsessed fan has been following her and "poses an immediate threat."

Bowman began sending Kardashian Twitter messages last fall, professing love for her, then moved from Georgia to Kardashian's home of Calabasas, Calif.

More disturbingly, he has started turning up periodically at the socialite's appearances in L.A., sometimes wearing joker face paint, a la The Dark Knight.

Wonder if he present for this display.

Dude must be out of his mind. He even sent a Twitter message to her boyfriend, Reggie Bush, looking for a fight. Reggie plays professional football!

A Kim K. Pic

Why stalk Kim Kardashian? It's illegal, and she's not that interesting!

At least he can be polite sometimes, however. Bowman also Tweeted to Kardashian to ask forgiveness for missing their dinner date planned in Atlanta recently.

They never had one, but still, good manners!

Under the restraining order, recommended by LAPD's Threat Management unit, Bowman must stay 500 yards away from Kardashian and stop contacting her.

Fortunately, he can still peruse our gallery of Kim Kardashian pictures!
