Alleged Britney Stalker Busted

A Canadian man accused of stalking Britney Spears has been arrested for a second time.

Daniel J. Lachance was corralled Tuesday night after entering the Louisiana property of the pop star’s father, Jamie Spears. According to published reports, Lachance was unarmed and offered no resistance.

The 25-year-old Canuck was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail Wednesday and charged with criminal trespassing and stalking. He’s being held on $150,000 bail.

Lachance had previously been picked up by cops on Spears family property April 12 and was warned not to do it again.

The alleged stalker was trying to track down the singer, who generally does not stay at her father’s house but whose family has several homes nearby.

(Heads up, Lachance, any serious Spears follower could tell you that the Britster’s been making headlines in Los Angeles with current boy-toy Kevin Federline-who’s about to have a second baby with his girlfriend Shar Jackson-during a break in her Onyx Hotel tour. Or maybe your subscription to Star has lapsed?)

Meanwhile, Lachance is not the first slave 4 Spears to be sidelined in his quest to meet the popster.

Another accused Spears stalker, Masahiko Shizawa, was deported back to his native Japan last year. This after sending her hundreds of letters and allegedly trying to break into her Los Angeles residence, then tracking her cross-country to the Louisiana digs of her divorced parents, as well as to her New York abode.

The overly ardent fan has launched two lawsuits. One against Spears, whose bodyguards he claims intimidated him and caused him “extreme emotional distress.” He’s also suing the city of Los Angeles for allegedly stripping him “of his human dignity” after cops searched his Sunset Boulevard hotel room.
