A man has been arrested for allegedly threatening U.S. reality TV medic DR. Drew and his family.
Charles Pearson was detained by police at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California on Wednesday (03Mar10) on a charge of making criminal threats, according to TMZ.com.
Dr. Drew - full name Dr. David Drew Pinsky - claims Pearson has been sending him threatening messages over the internet, including one which allegedly said he would kill the star's children and make his wife eat them.
Pearson is being held on a $150,000 (£93,750) bail bond.
The TV medic - who fronts U.S. reality show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew - tells the website he hopes Pearson "gets the treatment he deserves because he clearly needs it".
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
