Because a man has scared actress Drew Barrymore several times within a very short time, he has now apparently been arrested by the responsible officials in the state of New York. As the “New York Post” reports, a suspected stalker was sighted on Wednesday (August 23) in front of her Long Island property and taken into custody. According to the report, this was the same person who confronted Barrymore during a live talk in New York City last Monday (August 21).

The man had made himself suspicious because he had marched from villa to villa in the posh Southampton district to find the actress’ property there. When he is said to have actually stood in front of their door, the police intervened and arrested him. Fortunately, Barrymore was said not to have been on site at the time.

During the live talk a few days ago in New York, Barrymore fled the stage. She was in conversation with presenter ReneĆ© Rapp when someone from the audience called her name. Then she interrupted her sentence and called out in a good mood: “Oh my God, yes, hello.” As Barrymore then attempted to continue their conversation with Rapp, the situation escalated when a man approached the stage and gave his full name.

“You know who I am. I need to see you sometime while you’re in New York,” he said as Rapp got up to escort Barrymore off the stage. Meanwhile, the security forces intervened and held the man in check. A video from the scene was posted on X (formerly Twitter).

According to the “Santa Monica Daily Press”, the suspect is known to the police and is said to have been noticed several times for burglary and trespassing. He had been arrested several times – now apparently once more.
