Cher was left shaken after a man was arrested for harassing her during a night out.
The 'Believe' singer was enjoying herself at Nashville club Tootsies Orchid Lounge on Wednesday (25.06.08) when Calvin Hutton Houghland began pestering her.
Calvin, 36, repeatedly tried to make contact with his idol, much to Cher's distress.
After being asked to leave by club management, he initially complied, before returning later on and grabbing Cher around the waist as she sat in a roped-off area.
Security guards ejected Calvin, but he was so determined to meet the music superstar he tried to gain entry again.
He was stopped by doormen, prompting him to call police and claim he had been assaulted.
When officers arrived at the scene, Calvin requested a sobriety test for himself, which he failed.
Calvin was eventually arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
Cher, 62, decided not to press charges against her over-amorous fan, but Calvin asked to be arrested.
He spent the night in police cells and was later released on $3,000 bail.
