A 36-year-old man accused of stalking John Rich has been arrested in Nashville. The singer says 36-year-old Mark Sevier has been stalking him for about a year. The suspect apparently sent Rich an email recently showing Sevier wearing little if any clothing, covered in what appeared to be blood and draped in an American flag.
Rich obtained two restraining orders against Sevier last year, and the man was ordered to cease contact with him. Rich contacted police again this past April saying Sevier continued emailing him and referencing Rich's two young sons in the communications. As a result, Rich feared for his family's safety, since he's on the road a lot.
Sevier has been charged with aggravated stalking.
