Michael David Barrett, creator of Erin Andrews peephole video arrested

Michael David Barrett, 48, was arrested in Chicago on Friday night. The FBI said he faces federal charges of interstate stalking for taking the videos, posting them online and attempting to sell them, the Associated Press reported.  Seven of the eight videos that were posted online were taken through a modified door peephole while Erin Andrews, 31 was alone and undressed in hotel rooms in Nashville in September 2008.

Andrews plans to seek criminal charges and file civil lawsuits against the person who shot the video footage and anyone who publishes the material, the Associated Press reported.

Authorities have removed all copies of the Erin Andrews peephole video from internet sites.  The following video explains how the video was made, and that it is being removed from the internet.  A site may have it one day and it is removed the next, but the articles that say they have it still remain.  And many sites that appear to have the video are requiring the download of special software to view it and the software actually contains a virus.

      I’ve seen the video and I do NOT think Erin Andrews is entirely the victim here, in fact in light of the facts …

      She is completely naked: Seriously, how many of us staying in a hotel/motel room prance around the place completely naked. Isn’t that what the bathroom is for?

      She stays in shot: The pan angle of the peephole shot was, as are all peephole views, quite narrow. Isn’t it lucky she didn’t stand near the bed?

      Hallway filming: You mean not one person wondered who was taping in through the peephole.

      I believe the above examples only prove Erin was in on it and that the video was staged. As always, IMHO so YMMV. 😉

    2. Remarkable issues here. I’m very glad to peer your article. Thank you a lot and I am looking forward to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a mail?
