An alleged stalker got arrested after he showed up at Colin Farrell's house in Los Angeles. According to TMZ, Farrell was at home when a man showed up in his house on Saturday afternoon, November 16. Being scared by the unwanted visitation, the 37-year-old actor called his assistant. The assistant later contacted the police.
Officers took the man into custody. They also interviewed him and decided that he would be put on a 5150 psychiatric hold. Authorities have not released the man's name. The fan, however, reportedly is not a U.S. citizen. He apparently went to Los Angeles only to meet the "Total Recall" star.
In other news, Farrell and his sister Claudine attended the screening of his new film "Saving Mr. Banks" in West Hollywood on Tuesday, November 12. Farrell plays alongside Emma Thompson, Paul Giamatti and Tom Hanks in the movie which will hit U.S. theaters on December 13.
Most recently, Farrell attended the 2013 Governors Awards presented by the AMPAS at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood. He was joined by his sister, Thompson and Harrison Ford at the Saturday event. Hanks and his co-star in "Captain Phillips", Barkhad Abdi, were also present.
