During New York Fashion Week, Chad Michael Busto allegedly attempted to bust into Emma’s dressing room and was later arrested.
Authorities claimed Chad made his way into a dressing room at the venue, where a show was going on, and yelled at nearby make-up artists and models.
‘I want to marry Emma Watson,’ he allegedly yelled, according to court documents. ‘Let me speak to Emma Watson. Let me take a photo with Emma Watson.’
It was not immediately clear if the actress was present or nearby in the alleged incident, according to the outlet.
It was then reported that Chad was later released from prison as a prosecutor said the alleged offense was not eligible to have bail set.
The move comes less than a month after Chad was freed by a Southampton judge after he was arrested and charged with fourth-degree after stalking actress Drew.
He allegedly turned up at the star’s Hamptons home on August 23, two days after confronting her at a live event at the 92nd Street Y.
