A man named Patenema Ouedraogo allegedly has taken quite a liking to Serena Williams and Serena Williams’ Twitter persona. So much of a liking that Ouedraogo has found himself outside Williams’ house. And in random places like Williams’ dressing room during an appearance on Home Shopping Network.
A man accused of stalking tennis star Serena Williams told investigators he knew her whereabouts because of her updates on Twitter.
40-year-old Patenema Ouedraogo is charged with stalking and cyber-stalking, after he was arrested near Williams’ home early Tuesday morning by Palm Beach Gardens Police. Ouedraogo was booked just before 2 a.m.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Ouedraogo had a Texas driver’s license when he was stopped by private security near the home of Williams Monday evening. Guards had received alerts warning them of a man who had been stalking Serena and said he matched the description. They put him in handcuffs and called police.
Yep, Ouedraogo loves that chocolate.
