Michelle Branch punks stalker at show



Tbdbranch033007 Would you believe Michelle Branch has a stalker? That what the AP says, since the 23-year-old singer interrupted her own show Monday in Sheboygan, Wisc., to report a guy in the crowd who was making her nervous. “Michelle Branch just said, ‘Wait a second. There’s a guy in the audience — striped shirt and glasses — can somebody check him out?’ ” said Cali Haas, 20, of Sheboygan, who was in the crowd. “It left everyone just so confused, like, ‘Is this a joke, part of the show?’ ”

Dominick Giordano, 32, was cited for disorderly conduct after employees at the venue stopped him as he tried to run away, police said. Authorities said Giordano had been following Branch to concerts around the country since 2003 and regularly sends her letters and videos. He had previously managed to sneak backstage at concerts and into post-concert parties, and had lunged at Branch during an autograph signing. Not only that, but a restraining order after Giordano was arrested in Arkansas in 2004 has now expired. We all should keep an eye on this dude before he goes all John Hinckley on us. [Photo: AP]
