Colin Farrell

Crazed Fan Busted

For Creeping Around Actor's House

EXCLUSIVE

Colin Farrell got an unexpected, and unwanted, visitor at his home in Los Angeles this weekend -- and now the guy's been arrested and placed on a psychiatric hold. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... a man showed up to Colin's home Saturday afternoon hoping to catch a glimpse of the actor ... but things got weird when he walked right up to the front door.

We're told Colin was home at the time and got freaked out ... so he called his assistant who called cops.

The fan was quickly taken into custody and after cops spoke with him -- they decided to put the suspect on a 5150 psychiatric hold.

Police haven't released the suspect's name -- but our sources say he is not a U.S. citizen, and one of the reasons he came to L.A. was specifically to see Colin.

Much to do about NOTHING! This fan...like me and a few million other folks - just want to know if Colin actually has a British accent when no one is around!

So, TMZ, the headline says the guy was 'creeping around his house', the article says he just walked up to the front door. Make up your little minds.

I'm a bit surprised that the crazed fan wasn't me. I have an unhealthy obsession with Colin and I plan to profess my love for him in person in the near future. Note to self: abandon walk-up-to-front-door method.

Is he too lazy or too ignorant to dial 911 himself?

If you're famous you need a gate all around your property and an alarm going out every time someone jumps over the gate, they shouldn't be able to reach your front door without security already on their ass. Then again nothing can protect you from crazy people intent on getting to you. At least install cameras as witnesses.

Why such a blurry pic of Colin? He's quit smoking so it's also old. TMZ, you are so weird. LOL!

at least the guy did have some taste in who he was stalking . and next will come the restraining order by Colin for odds are that guy once he is let go will be sadly like all stalkers trying again for another visit with Colin
