Howard K. Stern Allegedly Threatens 'Witness'

5/19/2010 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. Stern has been accused of threatening a man whom South Carolina police call a "witness" in the Anna Nicole Smith drug trial ... this according to a police report obtained by TMZ.

According to the report, Mark Hatten -- Anna's ex-boyfriend -- told the Greeleyville Police Department he received a "threatening" message from Stern on May 3 via MySpace.

In the report, it says Hatten opened up Stern's alleged MySpace message on one of the officer's laptops, which read: "You are in over your head. You are being watched. Keep a look out before everything comes crashing down, do you understand me?"

We cannot confirm if Hatten will be a witness in the Anna Nicole-related case involving Stern, but Greeleyville cops are calling the investigation, "Intimidation of a witness/harrassment via Internet."

Stern scoffs at Hatten's allegation, telling TMZ, "Don't you have to have a MySpace account in order to leave a message?  I've wouldn't even know how to leave a message on MySpace."

We're told the GPD is still investigating -- but it's a tiny department in a 400 person town, so ....

If true, Stern could be charged with tampering with a witness.

Isn't Hatten the same guy who spent 5 years in prison for threatening Smith with a knife and beating up her neighbor who was coming to her rescue?



Yep, he sounds credible. Anyone can impersonate someone on facebook.

The story says Stern scoffed at the repoft and "tells TMZ". Two sentences later that calls to Stern weren't returned. Which is it?

OH MARK! WHAT A CRAZY, BASELESS ACCUSATION!!!



COULD IT BE BECAUSE YOUR SISTER; JACKIE HATTEN IS HAVING TO GO TO COURT BECAUSE STERN FILED A DEFAMATION SUIT AGAINST HER FOR ALL OF HER LIES ON LARRY KING LIVE AND OTHER TV PROGRAMS?



THE COURTS FINALLY CAUGHT UP WITH YOUR SISTER AFTER A YEAR OR SO OF HER HIDING OUT -- NOW SHE HAS TO SHOW UP IN COURT AND EXPLAIN HER LIES UNDER OATH!



WHO IS GOING TO BELIEVE YOU? YOU HAVE ALSO LIED AND DEFAMED STERN MANY TIMES IN THE PUBLIC. YOUR ACTIONS ARE DISCUSTING!



STERN SHOULD FILE FALSE CHARGES AGAINST YOU! OR IS THE WHAT YOU WANTED ALL OF THE TIME?



GET A LIFE! QUIT TRYING TO DESTROY OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES!!

Howard K. Stern is a s***bag but he's certainly not stupid. Obviously someone created a fake MySpace account, most likely Hatten himself.

Mark Hatten has been leaving threatening messages towards Howard K. Stern on TMZ as early as last week.n See this link and go back some pages : http://www.tmz.com/2010/02/10/dr-sandeep-kapoor-anna-nicole-smith-drugs-howard-k-stern-tmz-live2/47/#comments



If HKS had a MySpace account it was probably hijacked for the sole purpose of attempting to get something on someone they cant touch.



HATTTEN JUST GOT OUT OF PRISON FOR STALKING Anna Nicole Smith. These people are FREAKS
