Alleged Andrews stalker barred from web use

Prosecutors say a suburban Chicago man accused of secretly making nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews apparently also uploaded videos of other women to the Internet. Federal prosecutor Steve Grimes said Monday the videos were shot through hotel peepholes and uploaded under an online name used by 47-year-old Michael David Barrett.

Barrett is accused of videotaping Andrews nude by aiming a cell phone camera through an altered peephole in the door of her hotel room.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Arlander Keys on Monday ordered Barrett released with an electronic monitoring bracelet on his ankle and barred Barrett from using the Internet.

Barrett's attorney says the allegations aren't true. He is next due in court in Los Angeles on Oct. 23.
