San Diego woman accused of stalking Chris Chambers
A 27-year-old San Diego woman who had an affair with former Charger Chris Chambers was facing 11 misdemeanor counts Tuesday for allegedly stalking and harassing the wide receiver’s family after the affair ended, a newspaper reported.
Stacey Bernice Saunders allegedly stalked and harassed the Chambers family by phone on various dates from April through September, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.
District Attorney’s Office spokesman Paul Levikow told the newspaper Saunders was scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 19 in San Diego. She was notified of the date by letter and not arrested because the charges are misdemeanors, the Union-Tribune reported.
Chambers, who acknowledged having an affair with Saunders, filed a request for a restraining order this summer, saying she “launched an incessant attack verbally on me, and now my wife, her mother and sister.”
The 31-year-old Chambers characterized the calls, text messages and e-mails as “abusive, vulgar and irrational,” the Union-Tribune reported.
Chambers’ restraining order request was dropped in late June after neither he nor Saunders showed up for a hearing on the matter. A week later, Chambers filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
Last month, the Chargers cited Chambers’ off-field troubles as a contributing factor to the team’s decision to release him. He was let go Nov. 2 and quickly picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs.
