Tyra Banks Stalker Trial Begins Today

Forget the riotous raucousness of potential America’s Next Top Model contestantsTyra Banks has more personally pressing issues to deal with now.

The Associated Press reports that the trial of Banks’ alleged stalker, Brady Green, begins in New York today.

Green, a 38-year-old resident of Dublin, Georgia, is accused of stalking and harassing the Top Model host beginning in January 2008.

Police arrested Green on March 18 of last year, after he attempted to visit Banks at the New York building where The Tyra Banks Show is filmed. According to a criminal complaint, Green also showed up several times at Banks’ Los Angeles studio and asked to speak to her.

When confronted by police in New York, Green told cops, “I know [Banks]. She knows me. We had a thing together. I sent her flowers I sent her cards.” 

Green then asked police, “Should I plead no contest? I’ve got satellites watching me and recording us.”

Green, who has pleaded not guilty to stalking, criminal trespass and harassment, faces up to 90 days in jail if he’s convicted of fourth-degree stalking.

Banks is expected to testify at the trial. Perhaps now Green can hand-deliver those flowers to her himself.
