Police were called and Busto waved the officers over, saying he was the person Trader Joe’s employees had called about. 

He refused to follow police directions and was arrested, and then he refused to leave the patrol car upon arrival at the police station and had to be removed, prosecutors said.

The criminal past of Busto is something else, and that’s before even getting into his stalking of Amber Heard and now Drew Barrymore.

One post showed him being escorted out of a Walmart by staff after accosting shoppers, and whilst he was being escorted out he told shoppers that he had proposed marriage to Heard. 

“I am still waiting for a reply,” he told people in the store. “I would like everybody’s best wishes.” 


In other videos, he addressed Heard directly. “I hope we are going to see each other soon. And I love you very much,” Busto said in another video, posted on July 1.
