BOSTON (CBS) – Theo Epstein had his fair share of supporters during his near decade-long run as general manager of the Boston Red Sox.

One of them in particular has followed him to Chicago, though it’s not the kind of fan Epstein wanted to tag along.

Kathleen Kearney, 44 of Canton, has been arrested and charged with two felony counts of stalking Epstein.

Cook County State’s Attorney Andrew Conklin tells WBZ NewsRadio that Kearney was arrested near Epstein’s home around 6 pm Monday evening.

Kearney had a hearing on Tuesday and was held on $75,000 bond.

At the hearing, it was determined that Kearney looked up Epstein’s address on the internet and flew to Chicago. She rented a car and went to his home, and was first greeted by Epstein’s wife. Kearney spoke with her and even brought a gift, but Mrs. Epstein felt uncomfortable and called Cubs security and the police.

Kearney left the house to look for Epstein, and when she couldn’t find him returned and began calling out for him. Epstein then called the police, who arrested Kearney.

Epstein left the Red Sox in October to become President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs. Prior to his departure, police were called to keep watch of Epstein’s home due to stalking concerns, according to reports.

Kearney also attempted to contact Epstein several times in the past during his tenure in Boston.
