Michael David Barrett Arrested for Filming the Erin Andrews Peephole VideoCategory: Entertainment
In a report by CNN, the man who allegedly secretly videotaped ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews through a peephole in her hotel room was arrested by FBI authorities at the Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Friday night as he arrived on a flight from Buffalo, New York, USA.
The man is 48-year-old Michael David Barrett.
He took the Erin Andrews peephole video through a modified door peephole while the 31-year-old Andrews was alone and undressed in hotel rooms in Nashville, Tennessee, in September 2008. Investigators said the eighth video was likely taken at another hotel, which Andrews couldn’t identify. Barrett apparently called many hotels to find out where Andrews was staying and requested a hotel room next to hers.
But a dumb ass as well. Barrett now faces federal charges of interstate stalking for trying to sell the videos to celebrity Web site TMZ and posted online seven of the eight videos he taped.
She is an American sportscaster for ESPN who joined the giant sports network in 2004. In 2007 and 2008, she was voted “America’s Sexiest Sportscaster” by Playboy Magazine.
She has been referred to as “Erin Pageviews” because of the traffic that video clips and photos of her generate.
I have already seen the Erin Andrews peephole video and I tell you, there’s nothing spectacular about it. It just shows a video albeit blurry of a woman brushing her hair in front of the mirror naked.
Yes, not something you’d really drool about. It was just blown out of proportion due to the controversy that ensued.
