Dr. Drew Pinsky’s alleged stalker is being ordered to have a mental competency evaluation, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Charles William Pearson pleaded not guilty March 5 to stalking the TV and radio personality. His own attorney expressed doubt about his client’s mental competency, which led to the court order Thursday.
33-year-old Pearson allegedly stalked Dr. Drew between November 1 and March 3, and allegedly made death threats between February 1 and February 28. The star of Celebrity Rehab told police that Pearson has posted violent threats on MySpace over a few months.
A man who fit Pearson’s description also showed up during that time at a radio station that carries Dr. Drew’s radio show Loveline.
Pearson is due back in Pasadena Superior court on April 19.
