A man who was arrested outside the home of pop superstar Madonna is facing a psychological evaluation as prosecutors make their case against him.
Robert Linhart was detained by police after he was found close to the singer’s New York City property holding up signs declaring his love for the star.

The 59 year old was charged with criminal weapons possession after cops allegedly found an ice pick in his car, as well as disorderly conduct, making graffiti, possessing a graffiti instrument and resisting arrest.

He was arraigned at Manhattan Criminal Court on Friday and his bail was set at $20,000.

The judge overseeing the case also ordered Linhart to undergo a psychological evaluation to assess his mental state, according to the New York Daily News.

Linhart’s defence lawyer, Cheryl Bader, told the court, “There was no threatening conduct. My understanding is it’s not a crime to adore Madonna, if it were, the court would be a lot more crowded.”
