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.
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.
