Tyra Banks' Alleged Stalker Freed
Brady Green, 37, has allegedly been hounding Banks for months, sending her letters and leaving her phone messages since early January. The Dublin, Georgia, native then began sending the talkshow beauty flowers and last Tuesday turned up at the N.Y. TV studio where she films The Tyra Banks Show asking to speak to the star in person.
Authorities were alerted to Green's unwanted presence and found him carrying a large bag packed full of magazine cuttings and notes about Banks. He was removed from the premises, but later returned and waited for Banks to emerge from a fast food restaurant across the street.
Police were called back to the scene and officers took Green into custody, charging him with stalking, harassment and criminal trespass, reports the New York Post.
Green was hauled before a judge at Manhattan Criminal Court on Wednesday where he protested his innocence - and within minutes he was freed by Judge Anthony Ferrara, despite Green having prior run-ins with the law. Ferrara did issue an order of protection for Banks, but staff at the posh Chelsea, N.Y. studio are reportedly still anxious about Green's return.
A producer says, "There's no security at this building. It's very scary."
