ATLANTA (AP) - The ESPN reporter surreptitiously videotaped nude in a hotel room expressed frustration at being "treated like Britney Spears" when she called 911 to report paparazzi gathered outside her Atlanta area home.
In an audiotape released Wednesday, Erin Andrews is heard speaking with a 911 operator in suburban DeKalb County on July 22 to complain about two people parked in a car outside her home in a gated community.
Andrews identifies herself and tells the operator, "I'm all over the news right now," and describes herself as "the girl that was videotaped in my hotel room in the nude."
Clearly frustrated on the call, Andrews uses expletives to describe the two men whom she says also knocked on her door.
"I did nothing wrong, and I am being treated like (expletive) Britney Spears, and it sucks," Andrews told the operator.
Dunwoody police spokesman, Sgt. Mike Carlson, said officers responded to the call but no incident report was filed. Dunwoody is about 14 miles north of Atlanta.
It was not clear when the video of Andrews in the hotel room first appeared on the Internet. The person who first posted the video didn't identify the nude woman, but Andrews' attorney has since confirmed the video was of the 31-year-old reporter.
The blurry, five-minute video shows Andrews standing in front of a hotel room mirror, fixing her hair in the nude. It's unknown when or where it was shot. Andrews' attorney Marshall Grossman said the video was shot without her knowledge and Andrews plans to seek criminal charges and file civil lawsuits against whoever shot the video and anyone who publishes the material.
Andrews, a former University of Florida dance team member, was an Internet sensation even before the video's circulation. Some Web sites have referred to her as "Erin Pageviews" because of the traffic she can generate, and Playboy magazine named her "sexiest sportscaster" in both 2008 and 2009. She has covered numerous sports for the network since 2004, often as a sideline reporter.
