A man was arrested for trespassing at Sean Hannity's home in New York


A 72-year-old former dentist claiming to be writing a book about Sean Hannity has been arrested for trespassing at the Fox News host's home on Long Island.

Jan Gilbert, of Long Beach, was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass following the Feb. 17 incident.

Court documents say Gilbert told a person outside the house he was writing a book about Hannity and needed to give him some papers. They say he followed the person into the house.

Hannity's wife Jill, saw Gilbert in her home. She told police she didn't know Gilbert and that he didn't have permission to enter the house. She says she saw Gilbert leave and get into his vehicle.

Information on Gilbert's lawyer wasn't immediately available.

Gilbert told Newsday Wednesday that "someone misheard, fabricated or misunderstood" the incident.
