Stewart had to add extra security because of her threats. Russell also told the DEA that Stewart was carrying drugs on a plane -- which wasn't true -- and she allegedly sent a white powder to Stewart's attorneys that caused an anthrax scare.

Russell was reportedly angry that Stewart didn't sign a piece of memorabilia for her.

Now, it doesn't appear as if she will be getting out of jail anytime soon. She's still trying to make bail and sits in jail on charges of terrorist mischief, stalking, and two counts of intimidation,

The stalking allegedly began two years ago, and Russell called and harassed Stewart and members of his family.
