Fan Arrested Outside of Madonna's New York City Home

The Associated Press is reporting that a retired New York City firefighter who wanted to meet pop icon Madonna has been accused of scrawling messages of adoration on the sidewalk outside her apartment building. While such actions might seem innocuous on the surface, the whole thing becomes a little scarier when it was revealed that the former FDNY'er was also in possessions of a 7 1/2-inch ice pick a la Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct.
The suspect, Robert Linhart, 59, is charged with graffiti and criminal possession of an ice pick, which was recovered from his car. He's also charged with resisting arrest outside the building near Central Park. He was arrested on Tuesday while spray-painting a message to Madge.
The judge set Linhart's bail at $20,000 cash and his defense lawyer Cheryl Bader told The Daily News that there was "no threatening conduct" and it's "not a crime to adore Madonna." I am sure the Material Girl will agree with that sentiment and thinks that adoring her is an attitude required of most Americans. But this story does sound a little fishy and one wouldn't be out of line to assume that Linhart, who retired from service in 1998, might be a wee bit unstable, perhaps? His actions indicate that to a degree.
What celebrity would love to meet so much that you would spray-paint a graffiti message outside his or her house in order to get their attention? What is your favorite Madonna song?
