Most Smartest Model’s Andre charged with sexual misconduct and harassment, was already out on bail for stalking

Andre Birleanu, the arrogant and angry model on VH1’s surprisingly dull show America’s Most Smartest Model, was arrested Thursday and “charged with sexual misconduct and aggravated harassment,” the New York Post reports.

The woman told the paper that on Oct. 10, “He grabbed me inappropriately. … He touched my genitalia, and I immediately moved away. Then I looked over, and he looked really upset . . . I went up to him. And he was standing there with his head down. He said something along the lines of ‘no.’ He then grabbed my boob.” Andre told the paper, “I didn’t molest anyone … I already slept with that girl, so it’s strange she would say I touched her inappropriately.”

This isn’t his first encounter with police or jail: Andre “has served a half-dozen prison stints since 2000 on charges including assault, harassment, criminal contempt, criminal mischief and trespassing, law-enforcement sources” told the Post.

And as of yesterday, “he was free on $3,500 bail for yet another bizarre incident involving a woman. On Oct. 17, Birleanu was charged with stalking, aggravated harassment and attempted assault on a model friend.” That woman said Andre “pulled my hair once. He stopped. I crossed the street … I started running, and he screamed at me, ‘I’m going to break your f- – -ing legs.'”
