|Man Arrested in ESPN Reporter Nude Video Case
|LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The FBI says they've arrested a Chicago-area man who is accused of taking surreptitious nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews in a hotel room.
The bureau says in a statement that 48-year old Michael Barrett of Westmont, Ill., was arrested at Chicago's O'Hare Airport Friday night.
The FBI says Barrett faces federal charges of interstate stalking for taking the videos, posting the videos online and trying to sell them to celebrity Web site TMZ.com.
The charges were filed in Los Angeles.
Andrews is identified in the federal complaint as E.A.
The videos were taken through a modified peephole while Andrews was undressed in hotel rooms in Nashville, Tenn. and Milwaukee, Wisc., in 2008.
