A permanent restraining order was issued Tuesday afternoon (July 21) against a Nashville-area woman who has been stalking singer-songwriter Gary Allan. Police in Hendersonville, Tenn., arrested Katherine Walker on May 4 on charges of stalking Allan and burglarizing and vandalizing his home. Tuesday's session in chancery court in Gallatin, Tenn., lasted approximately three hours and included testimony from Allan, three of his band members, his tour manager and a representative of his management company. Walker, who represented herself, insisted that Allan had repeatedly called her, sometimes as many as 10 times a day. In court, Allan denied the allegation, telling her, "You scare me. I've never talked to you. I've never read your e-mails."
