Chris Cornell‘s alleged stalker, Jessica Robbins, was arrested outside his concert in Louisville, Kentucky Wednesday, TMZ reports.

Robbins was picked up by authorities after trying to enter the concert at the Louisville Palace. According to TMZ, all venues on Cornell’s tour have been given photos of Robbins should she show up to one of the gigs. Authorities in Kentucky have reportedly turned over Robbins’ case to the FBI.

The FBI in Louisville, Kentucky confirmed to Rolling Stone that the Louisville police handed Robbins over to the FBI after her arrest. Robbins was taken into custody as a fugitive on an outstanding warrant stemming from charges leveled against her in 2014. Her case will now be handed back over to the FBI in New York; new charges, if there are any, have yet to be filed against Robbins.

In 2014, the FBI arrested Robbins for allegedly harassing Cornell online and charged her with stalking. At the time, the Tampa Bay Times reported that Cornell and his wife believed that Robbins had entered their Miami home in 2013. The Cornells also pulled their kids out of New York public schools out of fear that Robbins would hurt them.

After her arrest, Robbins posted the $50,000 bail, but the judge ordered her to stay offline and wear an ankle bracelet so she could be monitored. However, Robbins skipped her next court date, managed to remove her ankle bracelet and had been missing until her arrest Wednesday.

Cornell remains on the road in support of his 2015 solo album, Higher Truth. The trek extends through the rest of the month, wrapping July 27th in Winnipeg.
