Clay Aiken

Alleged Stalker Arrested After Scary Home Encounter

4/9/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Frightening moment for Clay Aiken ... when an obsessed fan broke on to his property and made it all the way to his front door ... this according to police docs obtained by TMZ.

According to the docs, it all went down on April 3 ... when the fan -- 57-year-old Barbara Saylor -- snuck into Clay's gated community in North Carolina and hopped a fence surrounding the singer's home. Sources connected to the incident tell us the woman was seen trying to peer into a window at the front of the house.

The scary part -- Clay was home at the time.

Someone called 911 -- and cops responded to the scene. Barbara was eventually arrested for misdemeanor stalking and misdemeanor first degree trespassing.

According to the docs, Clay told police it's not the first time the woman -- who lives in the Seattle area -- crashed Clay's N.C. pad. Aiken told cops Barbara had previously "thrown her phone over the fence and reported she had been invited by the victim when actually she had not been."

Sources close to Clay tell TMZ ... the singer was shaken up by the incident ... but he's grateful to local law enforcement for responding so quickly.

The woman is due in court on April 24.

Remember that other stalker, the gay soldier guy that sold a story to the tabloids? I bet Clay has tons of stalkers of both sexes. Clay Aiken is awesome. Ask Evan from TMZ. He's a Claymate too.

You know anyone who does this stalking thing has got to be either mentally ill or have an awfully unhappy life. No one would with a good self image, good mental health, who is in a happy place in their life, would have a reason to become obsessed over another person. It's not something we would wish on anyone. The press needs to stop getting involved unless the person is a danger. It's like watching some poor soul try to kill themselves because their ex left them or something. It's never about the celeb (or the ex). I just think the mags & sites like TMZ should step back & let the doctors take care of these types. Remember what happened with the woman who kept letting her self into David Letterman's house. Very sad & the press is only adding to it.
