Stalker Dropped Through Tyler Perry’s Ceiling
Early Monday morning, movie and television mogul Tyler Perry filed for a protective order against an alleged stalker, who dropped through a ceiling at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
Employee Joshua Sole, 27, of Dunwoody, Ga. attempted to contact Perry on Thursday in hopes of securing a face-to-face talk with the film producer, but was unsuccessful, according to the lawsuit. Apparently, Sole decided to take matters into his own hands by disengaging the electricity and disabling the alarms and surveillance equipment at the studio. The former employee then successfully climbed through a suspended ceiling at the studio. Sole barricaded himself in a room where the administrative offices are located, according to the police incident report.
Local Atlanta police were notified about the intrusion around 6 p.m. Thursday. “Employee Joshua Sole has been acting weird,” the head of security told the officers upon their arrival. Sole was booked into county jail Friday for criminal trespass.
