Seems like once you’re famous they start coming out of the woodwork…

Jelly Roll is having a monster run in country music right now, recently notching his first #1 single with “Son of A Sinner,” and releasing his debut album Whitsitt Chapel last week.

But on Monday, the up-and-coming superstar had to be rushed to safety at a celebrity softball game after a man who’s been stalking him tried to confront Jelly Roll at the Nashville Sounds Stadium at First Horizon Park.

According to Scoop: Nashville, 41-year old Michael Curtis of Chipley, Florida was arrested after police observed him to be disorderly while in line for the Rock ‘N Jock Celebrity Softball game on Monday night. Curtis was reportedly approaching officers and asking if he had seen them at Deja Vu, a local Nashville strip club, earlier that morning.

Curtis then rushed up to Jelly Roll as the singer was arriving to compete in the softball game, and according to police the country star was in a “clear state of emotional distress” and had to be rushed inside the stadium to safety.

Apparently this isn’t the first run-in Jelly Roll has had with Curtis, as Scoop: Nashville reports that he had found the singer’s personal car outside of the Ryman Auditorium the day before and taken pictures beside it, tagging Jelly Roll on his Instagram.

He had also reportedly stalked a bus that he believed Jelly Roll to be on.

Curtis was booked into the Metro Nashville jail on charges of stalking, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, and was later released on a $5,000 bond.

After being released from jail, Curtis posted several videos to his Facebook making threats to Jelly Roll, as well as to the officers who arrested him, while also talking about getting Deja Vu, the strip club, shut down.
