DES MOINES, Iowa —A woman barred from being near the Hanson brothers was spotted in Des Moines at their events Wednesday and arrested.
A police report shows all three Hanson brothers have a protective order against Alexandra Martin, 26.
The event security first spotted Martin during their charity walk in Des Moines Wednesday afternoon.
Hanson is a band made up of brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson. They are best known for their 1997 single “MMMBop” from their debut album, “Middle Of Nowhere.”
The group’s tour manager and all three brothers saw “Martin within an arms’ length of Jordan Hanson, while starting a charity walk before their concert,” the police report reads.
Martin is required by the protective order to not come withing 300 yards of the Hansons.
Later in the day, Martin was spotted in the crowd at the group’s concert in downtown Des Moines. Police removed her from the crowd, and she was taken to the Polk County Jail.
“Martin advised she recently moved to Oklahoma from Massachusetts solely to be closer to the Hanson brothers,” reads the report.
She was charged with three counts of violating the protective orders.
