Wash. state woman charged with stalking Clay Aiken
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A woman from Washington state has been charged with stalking singer Clay Aiken at his home in North Carolina.
Barbara Jean Saylor, 57, of Kirkland, Wash., was charged with trespassing and misdemeanor stalking, the Chatham County Sheriff's Office said in a news release Thursday.
Deputies responded to a call from Aiken's home on April 3. They were told a woman had scaled a security fence and entered Aiken's property.
Authorities say she was ordered to leave when she was seen looking through the windows of the home. They say the woman left after being told that law enforcement was notified.
Saylor was released on $5,000 unsecured bond and is scheduled to appear April 24 in Chatham County District Court in Pittsboro. It wasn't clear if she had an attorney.
A spokeswoman for Aiken said the singer had no comment.
The 34-year-old Aiken came to fame in 2003 when he was the runner-up on the Fox TV show "American Idol." He's released several albums, including 2010's "Tried and True." He also played Sir Robin in the Broadway production of Monty Python's "Spamalot" in 2008.
