An Iowa man was arrested over the weekend after stalking actress Kate Beckinsale at the Tampa Bay Comic Con.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office arrested 45-year-old Terry Repp of Moravia, Iowa at around 9:30 Saturday morning. Officials say that Repp appears to have an obsession with Beckinsale that causes him to travel the United States in an effort to harass her. The actress had to postpone a panel discussion at Comic Con for several hours after filing a complaint against Repp. She reportedly suffered "emotional distress" and feared for her safety.

Repp remains in the Hillsborough County jail on $500 cash only bail. This isn't the first confrontation between Repp and Beckinsale. He reportedly touched her back and made comments about stabbing her while in Salt Lake City last year and the followed her to Texas before being arrested by police in Houston.
