Kathi Russell of Cape Coral, Fla., was arrested on Tuesday on felony charges of stalking, terroristic mischief and intimidation for stalking an harassing NASCAR team co-owner and former driver Tony Stewart, members of his family and team sponsors for more than a year. Her actions stemmed from anger as a result of Stewart not giving her an autograph at a race track.

An Indianapolis television station has reported that Russell made hundreds of anonymous calls to Stewart, his mother and sister for more than a year, playing disturbing audio clips and laughing maniacally. She also made a false claim to authorities that Stewart’s plane transported narcotics and called media outlets, providing false “tips” about Stewart.
