A man charged with stalking model and television talk show host Tyra Banks goes on trial Friday in New York City. Brady Green is accused of following and harassing the 35-year-old Banks from coast to coast starting in January 2008.

The Dublin, Ga., man was arrested March 18, 2008, at the Manhattan building where "The Tyra Banks Show" is taped. A judge warned him to stay away from Banks, who told police she feared she was in danger.

Banks is expected to testify.

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge James Burke scheduled the trial after a hearing in which he ruled most of Green's statements to police could be used as evidence.

The 38-year-old Green has pleaded not guilty to stalking and harassment. He faces up to 90 days in jail if convicted of fourth-degree stalking.
