Even though the ice pick wielding Robert Linhart said he's "going to go right back there [Madonna's apartment] and do it again," he was released on $20,000 bail on the condition that he stay 10 blocks away from her Upper West Side apartment. Linhart was not charged with stalking after parking outside Madonna's apartment with an SUV full of signs, a knife and an ice pick, but was ordered to stay away because "there is a fixation on her," says Assistant District Attorney Tatiana Fernandes.
Prosecutors had asked that bail be set at $60,000, as Linhart, a retired firefighter, has a DWI conviction. He is also facing felony weapons charges in the Madonna case. Linhart's lawyer says he is not a danger to Madonna, and previously argued, "My understanding is it's not a crime to adore Madonna."
