Sinclair, a homeless man on "God's mission," has been accused of Stalking Mel Gibson
A homeless man named Sinclair has been accused of stalking actor Mel Gibson. Believing God had sent him to pray with the actor, Sinclair began writing letters to him last July. Gibson's security chief, Jerry McKay, testified that Sinclair sent Gibson 12 letters in which he said God had sent him to California to pray with him and he also wrote in his letter that he had spent over two years in jail in Idaho for stalking a mentally ill woman.
In his action creeping past guards at a gated Malibu community to get to Mel Gibson, Sinclair who prosecutors say has a history of mental illness and a prior case of stalking in Idaho, was stopped by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Mark Winn and being told to leave and could not return. The court has decided that Sinclair is charged with one count of felony stalking.
