(Newser) – It's nice that Michael David Barrett, the guy who admitted to stalking Erin Andrews, is in jail, but that ain't paying the bills over at ESPN. The sports network has filed a claim demanding Barrett pony up $327,442.27 to pay for all the security hired to protect Andrews from him. ESPN also says it lost money by “assisting the government in its investigation,” reports TMZ.
