A South Florida man was arrested Wednesday after he was accused of aggravated stalking and violating a restraining order against LPGA player Morgan Pressel, according to a report in the Palm Beach Post.

The Post reports that Alexander Berger, 25, was arrested Wednesday after police said he tried to enter Pressel’s home in the gated community at St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla.

While being arrested, Berger reportedly told police that he wanted to speak with Pressel, whom he identified as his girlfriend, and was told to do so by Jack Nicklaus and the CIA, according to the Post. Police said he also sent harassing messages to Pressel on Twitter.

Berger was first issued an injunction against repeat violence on Pressel in December 2009, according to the report. The Post reports that Pressel, who was married earlier this year, told police that she had never met Berger.
