NEW YORK - A Queens man suspected of stalking singer Sheryl Crow was arrested after he sneaked into the arena where she was doing a sound check, police said.
After the Monday evening sound check, the man, Ambrose Kappos, 37, allegedly followed Crow out of the Hammerstein Ballroom on West 34th Street and tried squeezing into her limousine, police said.
Ballroom employees went to the police station around the corner from the ballroom and summoned help.
Police arrested Kappos, of Queens, on charges of burglary, stalking, harassment, aggravated harassment and criminal possession of marijuana.
Kappos' brother, Van Kappos, told the Daily News that his brother isn't dangerous.
"I want to apologize, from my whole family and myself, to Sheryl Crow and her family," Van Kappos told the Daily News. "We are sorry if my brother caused her any grief. It must be somewhat frightening to the singer and her family. He's infatuated."
