FBI probes threats against ESPN's Andrews
LOS ANGELES - April 5, 2010 -- The Norfolk office of the FBI is investigating death threats against ESPN sportscaster and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Erin Andrews, indicating they may have originated in that state.
Norfolk FBI spokesman Phil Mann said Monday that no arrests have been made. He declined to comment on a report by the celebrity gossip site TMZ that the e-mails were sent from someone in Newport News.
Andrews' attorney Marshall Grossman said last week that since September at least a dozen e-mails have been sent to a media outlet threatening his client.
He said the messages discuss the case of Michael David Barrett, who was sentenced last month to 2½ years in federal prison for secretly shooting nude videos of Andrews.
Grossman says the e-mails were at first sexual but the most recent threatened her.
