Madonna fan from Washington County told to stay away from her NYC apartment
NEW YORK CITY -- He might want to tell Madonna he's crazy for her, but a court wants a fan who was arrested proclaiming his love near her New York City apartment building to stay at least 10 blocks away.
A judge made that a condition as he set $20,000 bail Friday for retired firefighter Robert Linhart.
The 59-year-old was arrested last month.
He lives in Huletts Landing, on Lake George, according to the New York Post.
Authorities said he made signs expressing his adoration for the "Crazy for You" and "Material Girl" singer outside her apartment building near Manhattan's Central Park.
His lawyer has said the messages weren't threatening – just signs of being a fan.
A grand jury declined to indict Linhart on graffiti charges. He pleaded not guilty Friday to resisting arrest and weapons possession. Authorities have said he had a knife and ice pick.
