(Newser) – As if being videotaped in hotel rooms weren't bad enough, ESPN's Erin Andrews now has to deal with reporters outside her Georgia home, the New York Post reports. "I'm being treated like f---ing Britney Spears and it sucks," she complains to a 911 dispatcher. After describing herself as the "girl that was videotaped without her knowing, without her clothes on in the hotel," she tells the dispatcher—who was unfamiliar with her case—"I've got two assholes sitting outside my house right now."

The dispatcher promises to send a car, and police let the two interview-seeking reporters leave without incident, notes TMZ. At one point in the call, Andrews has her mother try to help scope out the pair. Writes Tommy Craggs on Deadspin: "To the lunatic fringe out there that believes beyond all reason and sense that Erin Andrews is somehow basking in the attention now, I think 'Mom, can you see their license plates?' is a pretty clear rejoinder."
