Kate Beckinsale's Alleged Stalker Arrested At Comic Con

Poor Kate Beckinsale.

E! News reports that the Underworld star had a scare at Tampa Bay Comic Con on Saturday, July 29, 2017.

According to the celeb news site, 45-year-old Iowa resident Terry Lee Repp was arrested after he showed up to the Tampa Bay Convention Center, where Beckinsale was scheduled to make an appearance for a Q&A session. He was booked with bail set at $500. Beckinsale reportedly filed a police report.

In a statement, police said that Repp "has a history of following and harassing [Beckinsale] and came to Tampa in an effort to continue the harassing behavior."

"Repp made physical contact with the victim during an event in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2016. During this encounter, Repp touched the victim's back and made a statement to the victim in reference to stabbing her," the statement continued. "In a continuing effort to harass the victim, Repp also traveled to Houston, Texas in 2016, where [Beckinsale] was attending an event. Repp was detained by the Houston Police Department and trespassed from the event. Repp appears to have an irrational obsession with [Beckinsale] and has traveled across the country in an effort to harass her. Repp's actions caused the victim substantial emotional distress and caused her to fear for her safety. Repp has been charged with stalking and was booked into Orient Road Jail."

Following the Comic Con incident, Beckinsale, 44, postponed her scheduled appearance for a number of hours.
