According to reports from Southhampton Patch, a Coventry man whom authorities said is stalking singer-actress Jennifer Lopez was arrested at her Water Mill house in Southhampton, NY earlier this month.
Southampton police said 49-year-old John Dubis, a former East Greenwich firefighter, had been living for a week in the pool house on Lopez's property in the Hamptons while she was away and went undetected until a staff member noticed a suspicious male and called the police. Huffington Post reports he slept on a couch and parked his car out front in plain sight of her security, according to sources.
Authorities noted that Lopez already had an order of protection against Dubis for allegedly contacting her mother earlier this year.He was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, a felony; first-degree criminal contempt, a felony; fourth-degree stalking, a misdemeanor; and possession of burglar tools, also a misdemeanor. Held overnight in Suffolk County jail, he was arraigned the next day. He pleaded not guilty and was held on $100,000 bail.
According to a police news release, the Southhampton Town court ordered an exam to determine if Dubis is "fit to proceed" with the criminal charges. His next court date is Aug. 28.
