Dr. Drew Pinsky spoke to RadarOnline.com and revealed new details about a man arrested Wednesday after threatening to kill the doctor's family.
Charles Pearson is being held on $150,000 bail by the Pasadena Police Department on a felony stalking charge. Dr. Drew told RadarOnline.com: "This person had been making threats against me on MySpace about six months ago. I brought it to MySpace's attention, and they did a great job in removing him. I thought that was the end of it. "About six weeks ago, I was told that there was a man making threats against me at the radio station where I do "Love Line" every night. I didn't think the two events were related.
"I had a small claims case filed against me recently by someone, and then I began to put the pieces together, that this was the same person. The small claims case is absolutely ridiculous and accuses me of implanting him with tracking devices, I have never even met this person. "I told my wife I was planning on going to court in order to defend myself and Susan told me absolutely not. Susan began tracking what this person was saying about me and our family and we contacted law enforcement about a week ago."
Pearson allegedly threatened to murder the couple's three teenage children and make Susan eat them. Dr. Drew told RadarOnline.com his wife was instrumental in getting Pearson arrested. "The police complimented my wife for her research and diligence in gathering as much information as was possible. Susan truly was, as always, amazing. "We are truly grateful to the Pasadena Police Department and the Culver City Police Department. The Culver City Police Department now makes sure I get to and from my car each evening safely before and and after I do Love Line."
While Dr. Drew has praise for law enforcement, he has different feelings about the legal system, "I must say that I'm very perplexed at our legal system that would allow a person to file a small claim lawsuit against me," he told RadarOnline.com. "What if I hadn't taken any action and this person had been awarded the $2500 he was seeking? He could have possibly rented a car to come and get us. I wasn't even served, the small claim lawsuit was dropped off at Las Encinas weeks ago." Pearson's arraignment is likely to be scheduled within the next 48 hours.
