Drew Barrymore’s ‘stalker’ Chad Michael Busto arrested after ‘showing up to her $6M Hamptons home’ following stage scare | The Sun

DREW Barrymore’s stalker Chad Michael Busto has been arrested after showing up at her $6million Hamptons home.

Law enforcement sources confirmed to TMZ that there is an "ongoing investigation" taking place after the arrest. 

On August 23, Chad showed up uninvited at the star's Hamptons farmhouse.

Chad went house to house in search of Drew's property, according to the New York Post.

After he found the farmhouse, the fan walked onto the estate before police took him into custody.

The Drew Barrymore Show host was reportedly not home at the time.

This came days after the alleged stalker frightened her during an onstage appearance.


On August 22, Drew, 48, hosted a live interview at 92NY in New York.

The E.T. actress interviewed HBO Max star Reneé Rapp, 23, the star of The Sex Lives of College Girls.

The commotion started when Chad, who was in the packed crowd, suddenly shouted: "Drew Barrymore!" according to NBC News.

Drew became startled and replied: "Oh, my God! Yes! Hi!"

In response, Chad approached the stage while shouting his own name, and told her: "You know who I am."

When he was close to the duo on stage, Chad added: "I need to see you at some point while you’re in New York, OK?"

Drew seemed shocked during the terrifying interaction.

At this point, Drew was quickly led off the stage by Reneé, who jumped up and grabbed her arm.

Chad was escorted away from the area by two uniformed men, but was not arrested.

Meanwhile, Drew and Renée wrapped their arms around each other and walked backstage.

An incident report was not filed to the New York Police Department, according to the publication.

Despite the interruption, Drew and Renée returned to the stage to finish their discussion, according to MSN.

Renée made a reference to the scary moment as she told the audience: “They were like, ‘Hey, do you need anything? Just a sec?’

"She was like ‘Oh no, I’ve got it, I’m good.’”


Video of the incident went viral after being posted on Pop Crave.

Although the Whiplash director has not made any comments, fans shared their shock at the events on On X, previously known as Twitter.

One concerned person said: "I honestly have no words except this is scary beyond belief."
