Some people get a little bit more into watching the news than others.
Then there's this idiot from Brroklyn.
Cops busted Richard Pagani and charged him with stalking after he wrote on Facebook that he was infatuated WCBS Anchor Diane Macedo.
Macedo, who previously worked at FOX Business, told police Pagani had been harassing her for two years, sending letters to her office and contacting her on social media. He has even tried to visit her at her Manhattan office.
When police went to his house, Pagani was wearing a purple sweatshirt with Macedo’s image emblazoned on it, the complaint said. Cops also found a video of him masturbating to Macedo’s newscast.
He sent her an obscene message through Facebook in March, according to a criminal complaint.
“I’m surprised my cock didn’t fall out of my pants when I saw you on television,” the message read.
The video shows that it actually did.
Macedo reported the alleged stalking to cops after Pagani approached her while she covered the funeral of NYPD Officer Dennis Guerra in Queens on Monday.
He posted a twisted apology on his Facebook page after the meeting didn’t go as planned:
“I hope you pass out in an ally with a Gatorade an I phone I hope one day you wake up and realize what a fuck up today was stupid brain washed bitch I'll never ever pull my self away from I love you it will make more sense to us one day I know you'll be There your be ok I'll be ok too.”
Pagani has three prior arrests, which are sealed.
Macedo obtained an order of protection against Pagani, who was sent to Rikers Island, records show.
No word if he will be watching the news in Rikers.
