Boston priest arrested on charges of stalking Conan O'Brien

A priest who wrote threatening letters to late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien on parish letterhead and even came to his studio was arrested.

The Rev. David Ajemian, a priest in the Archdiocese of Boston, was arrested last week while trying to enter a taping session of NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" at New York 's Rockefeller Plaza , Barbara Thompson, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan prosecutor's office, said Wednesday.

Ajemian referred to himself as "your priest stalker" in one note and complained of not being allowed in to see an earlier taping of the O'Brien show, court papers say.

"Is this the way you treat your most dangerous fans?" the note said.

The letters and e-mails, which started coming in September 2006, continued even after Ajemian was asked to stop and were "intended to cause annoyance and alarm," Thompson said. Ajemian also has been in contact with O'Brien's parents, Thompson said.

"I want a public confession before I ever consider giving you absolution - or a spot on your couch," wrote Ajemian, who signed the notes "Padre," Thompson said.

The priest could face up to a year in prison if convicted of aggravated harassment and stalking.

The Boston Archdiocese said in a statement that Ajemian had been placed on leave and was no longer allowed to minister publicly. O'Brien has participated in fundraising activities for the archdiocese.

O'Brien is not commenting, an NBC spokesman said.

A telephone message left Wednesday night at St. Mary-St. Catherine of Siena Church in Boston, which Ajemian gave as his address, was not immediately returned.

He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999
