Hold the Show- There’s A Stalker!

michelle-branch.jpgMichelle Branch of The Wreckers stopped in the middle of her show in Sheboygan, Wis., because of an alleged stalker.

“Michelle Branch just said, ‘Wait a second. There’s a guy in the audience – striped shirt and glasses – can somebody check him out?’ ” audience member Cali Haas, 20, of Sheboygan, tells the Associated Press. “It left everyone just so confused, like, ‘Is this a joke, part of the show?’ ” Haas added.

According to the AP:
Dominick Giordano, 32, was cited for disorderly conduct after employees at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts stopped him as he tried to run away, police said.

Authorities said Giordano had been on Branch’s trail since 2003, following her to concerts around the country and regularly sending her letters and videos. ”He used to get his way into meet-and-greets and private events somehow and would try to approach her and touch her and just really inappropriate stuff,” said Branch’s road manager, Joshua Scott. Adding, that a restraining order issued after Giordano’s 2004 arrest in Arkansas has since expired.

The police report said Branch described herself as frightened by the situation, especially because she had her 19-month-old daughter, Owen, at Monday’s concert.

After the incident, Branch apologized to the crowd and delivered her final song, Haas said.
