Beyonce 'lover' arrested in Connecticut

A male Beyonce Knowles fan has been arrested in Connecticut for reckless driving after alleging he was on his way to a romantic liaison with the married R&B superstar.

Thirty-three year old Robert Williams Jr, from Michigan, was taken into custody in Milford on Sunday after almost smashing into a police car.

Officers claim he stopped to ask police for directions to Detroit, Michigan before driving off, narrowly missing the police car and driving over a sidewalk.

Williams, who had flowers and a teddy bear in the car, is also alleged to have asked the cops if they were escorting him to New York City, where he claimed the 'Crazy In Love' singer had agreed to meet him at the George Washington Bridge.

Knowles, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, was not contacted by police and officers added Williams had not made any threatening remarks about the singer.

The man was arrested and charged with erratic driving, speeding and other traffic offences, and was taken to a local hospital for a mental evaluation.

He is due to appear in Milford Superior Court on November 4.
