Man who filmed Erin Andrews out on bond

The Associated Press is reporting that Michael David Barrett, an Illinois insurance executive accused of taping nude videos of former Florida Gators dazzler turned ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews in her hotel room, was released on $4,500 bond Wednesday while he awaits a court date on Oct. 23.

Barrett, 47, faces federal charges of interstate stalking, and prosecutors believe he secretly taped and uploaded videos of other nude women to the Internet in addition to those of Andrews. Now wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet, adhering to a strict curfew and banned from using the Internet, Barrett reportedly made these videos by “modifying peepholes in hotel room doors using a hacksaw and a cell phone camera.”

Court records show that Andrews appears nude in at least eight of Barrett’s videos, which he was planning to sell to TMZ for profit. Interstate stalking carries a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000.
