After watching Howard’s interview with the Criminal Behavior Analyst it was interesting to hear Ronnie the Limo Driver mention that there had been an incident in the 1990s where he was forced to take action.
Hearing Ronnie mention the incident once before I decided to try and find the article he was alluding to.
From 1996 NY Daily:
Stern Gets A Big Shock Fan With Gun In Car Threatens To Kill Radio Jock
A crazed Howard Stern fan packing a stolen shotgun in his car threatened the radio shockmeister outside his studio yesterday.
Screaming, “Hey Howard, I’m going to kick your ass!” Samuel Callea was arrested after chasing Stern’s limousine into a studio loading dock on 58th St. between Park and Madison Aves. about 5:30 a.m., police said.
Callea, 33, of Buffalo, was unarmed but had the unloaded shotgun and four shells in his nearby parked car. “I’m going to kill him,” Callea told Stern’s driver.
While bodyguards ushered the K-Rock radio star to his studio, the limo driver followed Callea back to the suspect’s car, parked on Madison Ave. A bodyguard flagged down two city deputy sheriffs on towing duty.
Deputy Sheriffs Steven Calzati and Nick Dousmanis radioed city cops and asked Callea if he was armed.
“I have a shotgun in my trunk,” the sheriffs said Callea replied. They found a rusty, 16-gauge, single-barrel shotgun and four rounds of ammunition in the front passenger seat. The weapon had been stolen in Jacksonville, Ill., but it was not clear how Callea obtained it.
So even though Ronnie might not be the best qualified security person Howard could hire, he definitely is one of the most loyal.
