LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman has been arrested after authorities say she was stalking a Jefferson County District Court Judge.

According to an arrest report, a Jefferson County Sheriff's deputy spotted 36-year-old Gerri Tiller loitering in the hallway outside the district courtrooms in the Hall of Justice Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities say court was not in session at the time.

Tiller said she was looking for District Judge Stephanie Pearce Burke, according to an arrest report.

"I approached the subject and she advised me she was looking for Judge Burke," the sheriff's deputy stated in the arrest report. "I told her court was over. I recognized her from being in Judge Burke's court."

Tiller then demanded to know the location of Burke's office, as well as her phone number, according to the arrest report.

"She insisted she was going to find her," the deputy states.

Authorities say Tiller had no business in the Hall of Justice, and she was escorted to the sheriff's office inside the building.

But on the way, Tiller saw Judge Burke walking in the Hall of Justice, and exclaimed, "There she is!"

Sheriff's deputies restrained her, according to the arrest report.

The arresting officer went on to write that Judge Burke could be "in physical danger" if Tiller ever found her.

Tiller has been arrested and charged with stalking -- a misdemeanor.
