Woman charged with stalking Soundgarden singer

Tampa, Florida -- A Tampa woman was arrested Friday accused of stalking Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the band's website administrator turned over numerous hostile tweets and posts from 32-year-old Jessica Leigh Robbins to the FBI's New York office.

According to a federal complaint, it got so bad, Cornell and his wife went so far as to pull their children out of their schools in New York out of fear Robbins would try to hurt them.

Robbins has since been released on $50,000 bail, but was ordered to wear an ankle monitoring device and stay off the computer. She is also barred from going within 1,000 feet of the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater in Tampa where Soundgarden is scheduled to perform Aug. 11, or from having contact with the family or the band.

A summary of Friday's hearing states that she has bipolar disorder.
