Erin Andrews Thanks Law Enforcement For Arrest In Peephole Case
ESPN reporter Erin Andrews has issued a statement thanking Assistant United States Attorney Wes Hsu and Special Agents for their “dedicated service” in arresting a reporter accused of filming the sports buff without her knowledge or consent on multiple occasions while she was staying in hotels around the country.
Michael David Barrett was arrested on a charge of interstate stalking at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Friday night. The Chicago-area man is of filming surreptitious nude videos of Andrews and later trying to sell them to TMZ.
“I hope that today’s action will help the countless others who have been similarly victimized,” Andrews said in a statement Sunday. “I will make every effort to strengthen the laws on a state and federal level to better protect victims of criminal stalking. I am also grateful to those who have expressed their concerns and good wishes for my family and me.”
Erin’s attorney, Marshall Grossman, credits the lady herself for the advancement in this case: “She has worked side by side with law enforcement to reconstruct the events and provide leads which have led directly to [Friday's] action.”
