An obsessed fan who jumped the gate at Chloe Grace Moretz’s family home has been hit with four trespassing charges but dismissed for stalking.
The 22-year-old actress was targeted by an obsessed fan on June 30 and July 1 after 18-year-old Justin Alexander Behr was arrested twice in the space of 24 hours at her home in Los Angeles, California, when he allegedly jumped the front gate and knocked the door in the hope that he could meet her.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Chloe was awarded a temporary protective order against him.
However, now TMZ.com reports that he has been let off the hook with regards to stalking and now faces four counts of misdemeanour trespassing, two per each day he forced his way into the front of her family’s home.
The ‘Greta’ star’s family are trying to get a permanent restraining order against the obsessed fan.
When he knocked the door of the property, the man was greeted by a member of her family, who ushered him away before calling the police.
He was arrested outside Chloe’s home as he was sat in his car waiting for her to return.
Despite spending the night in the cell, the man clearly hadn’t learnt his lesson as he allegedly went back to the ‘If I Stay’ actress’ mansion as soon as he was released, hopped over the fence and knocked on the door again.
He was picked up by cops a few blocks away at 8:45pm on July 1 and held on a $150,000 bail – up a staggering amount from his $1,000 bail the first time.
The man was first arrested for misdemeanour trespassing, but after returning to Chloe’s house for a second time, his charges were put up to felony stalking.
However, law enforcement officers told gossip site TMZ that they didn’t believe a stalking charge was necessary.
