Ex-fireman Robert Linhart is obsessed to the point of arrest with Madonna:
According to the BBC, retired fireman Robert Linhart was arrested on Tuesday while spray-painting messages on the pavement to the singer asking to meet her.It would be puzzlingly heartwarming were it not for the massive icepick he was carrying with him in the car.
One read: "M, the universe brought us together in 1992 and again this year in Prague. Meet me please."
His defence appears to be "she's Madonna" - which didn't work for Robbie Williams and probably won't work here:
His lawyer, Cheryl Bader, defended his actions telling the New York Daily News: "There was no threatening conduct. My understanding is it's not a crime to adore Madonna. If it were, the court would be a lot more crowded."Probably not very crowded; like glue-sniffing, there was a lot of it about in the 1980s but most people now view those minor infractions as one of the silly things you do before you grow up, surely?
