Naked Anna Kournikova fan arrested on stalking charge

UPI News Service, 02/09/2005 

A homeless man is in a Miami jail on several charges related to the alleged stalking of tennis knockout Anna Kournikova.

William Lepeska, 40, removed all his clothes to swim across a bay and -- thinking he was at Kournikova's $5 million mansion -- made himself comfortable in the yard of another home three doors away, E! Online reports.

"Anna! Save me!" the still-naked Lepeska yelled as Miami-Dade cops took him away from Miami's exclusive Sunset 3 Island late last month. Once in police custody, he told officers of his obsession with the tennis star.

After using the Internet to find Kournikova's home, Lepeska sent her several letters and posted messages on her Web page, making "alarming statements indicating that he believed Ms. Kournikova had left a door unlocked for him to enter her residence and left clothing for him to wear as if she was expecting his arrival," a police report said.

Police said they arrested Lepeska for stalking and burglary, and later hit him with other charges after he assaulted an officer while trying to convince them his connection with the blonde beauty was for real.

Her publicist says Kournikova was shaken by the incident, and is seeking a restraining order to keep Lepeska away from her.
