A 68-year-old Florida woman is facing charges of stalking, violating a protective order, terroristic mischief, and intimidation after she allegedly stalked NASCAR star Tony Stewart and his family for more than a year.

A report by television station FOX59 in Indianapolis said court documents indicated that Kathi Russell stalked Stewart because she was angry that he failed to give her an autograph. According to published reports, court records said Russell’s actions included phone calls to Stewart, his mother, and his sister, that sometimes included the playing of “Psycho Killer” a Talking Heads song.  

All of the charges are felonies. Russell, a resident of Cape Coral, Florida, is being held in a Lee (Fla.) County jail on $30,000 bond and is awating extradition to Indiana.

Russell was arrested Tuesday by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and will be transported to Indiana where she faces a $30,000 bond in Marion County, Indiana.

The harassment continued from March 2016 through October of this year, court documents said. 

FOX59 reported investigators said Russell made more than 300 phone calls from six different numbers directed at Stewart, his family, business or sponsors.
