MADISON, Wis. (AP) -A former Wisconsin football player has been charged with threatening the lives of former Badgers coach Barry Alvarez and tennis star Maria Sharapova.
Thirty-two-year-old Leonard Taylor Jr. of Indianapolis faces one felony count of stalking and one misdemeanor count of telephone harassment.
Alvarez currently serves as Wisconsin's athletic director. A criminal complaint says Taylor left multiple ``bizarre'' messages on Alvarez's work voicemail in September. Police told him to stop, but last week he left more than 20 messages laced with profanity threatening Alvarez, Sharapova and their families.
Online court records didn't list an attorney for Taylor. The complaint says Taylor's father told police his son has been diagnosed as schizophrenic and hasn't taken his medication for weeks.
