A man has been arrested in Tennessee for allegedly stalking country star John Rich.

Mark Christopher Sevier was taken into custody on 23 June (13) after the Big & Rich star provided evidence to police that he was being harassed by the 36-year-old lawyer via email.

He was charged with aggravated stalking and later released after posting $4,000 (£2,581) bond.

Sevier is due back in court on 29 July (13).

This isn't the first time Rich has run into trouble with Sevier - the singer won two restraining orders against the man last year (12) following similar stalking accusations and they were involved in a copyright infringement lawsuit in 2011.

Sevier also previously represented aspiring singer Jared Ashley in an assault case against the star in 2009.
