The FBI arrested 48-year-old Michael David Barrett on charges of interstate stalking for surreptitiously shooting a nude video of ESPN star Erin Andrews in a hotel room.

Andrews said in a statement, “I am deeply grateful to Assistant United States Attorney Wes Hsu and Special Agents for their dedicated service; and to ESPN for its support during this difficult time. I hope that today’s action will help the countless others who have been similarly victimized. ‚ For my part, I will make every effort to strengthen the laws on a State and Federal level to better protect victims of criminal stalking. ‚ I am also grateful to those who have expressed their concerns and good wishes for my family and me.”

Barrett is appearing in a Chicago court today.
