A 49-year-old man is in custody after trying to barge into Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx's hotel penthouse in Philadelphia, police have said.

They say William Brown knocked on Foxx's door at the AKA Hotel on 20 March claiming to be Beyonce's music producer but was ejected by security.

The police were called after he returned on two separate occasions.

He is being held in lieu of $250,000 (£169,000) bail on stalking and other charges. He is due in court on 7 April.

Authorities say that when Mr Brown initially tried to shove his way into Foxx's room, the star pushed him out and called security.

He was ejected again a few days later, but police were called when he returned on 31 March.

Foxx has now returned to Los Angeles after completing filming in Philadelphia this week on his movie, Law Abiding Citizen.
