Dave's New Trespasser

David Letterman’s latest overly zealous fan has been put on probation for a year. A judge Tuesday granted the request of Nellie Shirley, 39, a postal worker from Honea Path SC, to be put in an accelerated rehabilitation program, which means her record will be erased if she fulfills the court’s conditions. Shirley was arrested on Letterman’s front lawn in New Canaan CT in late September, several days before his most famous stalker, Margaret Ray, committed suicide by kneeling in front of a coal train in Hotchkiss CO. Ray, a former mental patient, made news by repeatedly breaking into Letterman’s home, claiming to be his wife and even stealing his Porsche.
