Madonna fan ordered to stay away

Madonna fan ordered to stay away

Robert Linhart, 59, was busted twice in one week outside the 51-year-old star's apartment with a knife, a box cutter and a big stick.

He pleaded not guilty to weapons possession and resisting arrest and a Manhattan judge set his bail at USD 20,000 on the condition he not step within 10 blocks of the Material Girl's pad, reported New York Daily News.

The judge imposed the restrictions even though prosecutors did not pursue stalking charges against the 21-year FDNY veteran.

Though they did not ask for an order of protection for the singer, prosecutors made it clear Linhart is obsessed with Madonna.

"He had signs that were directed at Madonna. There is a fixation on her," Assistant District Attorney Tatiana Fernandes said, arguing to keep Linhart behind bars.
