NEW YORK — A man has been arrested for allegedly stalking Drew Barrymore multiple times this week, including once in an incident at 92NY that’s since gone viral.
Chad Michael Busto was taken into custody after showing up at the actress’ home in Southampton Wednesday, authorities confirmed to TMZ.
The arrest came on the heels of Busto accosting the 48-year-old talk-show host while she was being interviewed by Renée Rapp on Monday at a panel hosted by the 92nd Street Y, according to a video previously published by the outlet.
Busto screamed at Barrymore during the event, as seen in the clips.
Though she excitedly responded when he started by calling her name — “Oh my God, yes, hi!” — Busto didn’t stop.
“I’m Chad Michael Busto,” he said, approaching the stage. “You know who I am. I need to see you at some point while I’m here in New York.”
Broadway star Rapp, 23, helped lead Barrymore off stage, with security coming between the pair. Busto was subsequently escorted from the venue, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Upon the actress’ return to the stage, Barrymore praised the “Sex Lives of College Girls” actress for the “level of protectiveness” she exhibited.
“That went full ‘Bodyguard,’” said Barrymore, before equating Rapp to Kevin Costner, in a nod to the 1990s drama in which he plays bodyguard to Whitney Houston’s character.
The New York City Police Department previously told The Hollywood Reporter that Monday’s incident had not been reported to them.
Neither the NYPD nor the Southampton Police immediately responded to the Daily News’ requests for comment.
