Colin Farrell in scare as ‘stalker fan’ shows up at his door in LA
Hollywood star Colin Farrell got a fright over the weekend when an uninvited fan turned up at his door, US website TMZ reports.
The 37-year-old actor discovered the fan on his front doorstep on Saturday afternoon and ‘freaked out’, according to the celebrity website.
Colin was at home with his family when the man walked up to his door, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Dublin-born actor.
However, Colin was understandably freaked out by the incident and called his assistant who got in contact with the police and the man was placed on a psychiatric hold.
The foreign national man told cops he wanted to meet his idol Colin. After interviewing him, the Los Angeles police decided to detain the man on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
It is not the first time that Colin has been targeted by fans.
Back in 2006, he was stalked by Dessarae Bradford, a telephone sex worker who interrupted a taping of The Tonight Show in an effort to speak to the actor.
Colin got a restraining order against Bradford but she unsuccessfully tried to sue him for 'harassing' her.
