Attacker waits for actress Kelly McGillis

A female home intruder was waiting for “Top Gun” star Kelly McGillis when the 58-year-old walked in her front door June 17, and immediately attacked her, accusing the famed actress of “stalking” her on Twitter. McGillis wrote about the incident recently on Facebook, and said when she ran outside to call 911, the woman — identified by Henderson County police as Marie Dorn, 38 — pursued her, all the while “punching and scratching,” according to Page Six. McGillis escaped in her pickup truck, and flagged down a driver who called the cops, who arrested Dorn. She’s charged with second-degree burglary, misdemeanor stalking and assault and battery. Unsurprisingly, McGillis is applying for a concealed-carry permit.
