Kyrie Irving, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, hasn't yet signed his rookie deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers because of the lockout, but he's already taken a major step on the road to becoming a professional athlete.

Over the weekend, WOIO.com reported that Irving filed a police report seeking a restraining order against a woman who had been stalking him over Twitter.
The woman is identified as Jessica Jackson also known as Miss Hawaii.

According to the West Orange Police report, Irving says he met Jackson once in person in front of a hotel in Charleston, S.C., for two minutes. The two had a short conversation and then went their separate ways.

Irving says Jackson then posted some videos on YouTube blasting him and allegedly threatened to stab him via his Twitter account.
A Montclair Patch report clarified that the meeting between Irving and Jackson occurred in Charlotte, North Carolina.
 
In a post appropriate for those 18 years and older, BlackSportsOnline.com reports that the woman has a criminal background and a history of sordid behavior. 

Irving is a sharp guy who told reporters the day before the draft that he plans to return to Duke University to continue work on his degree if the lockout extends into the fall. The lesson here, probably, is that if Irving can find himself mixed up in a situation like this then any NBA player can.

Hopefully this will be the last we hear of it.

Kyrie Irving files police report against stalker

This is another example why these athletes need to stay away from groupies and stay close to his family. I personally know Dred Irving and remember Kyrioe as a young kid. This behavior does not fit his life style. This woman deserves to be arrested and charged with terroristic threats. This should confirm that everyone should be very discreet when doing facebook to twitter etc. It's trouble waiting for a victim.
