'Dancing With the Stars': Erin Andrews receives death threats

kendra-andrews-dan-patrick-erin-andrews.jpgErin Andrews' security at "Dancing With the Stars" has been increased following several recent death threats.

According to TMZ, the FBI has been brought in to investigate several death threats "The Dan Patrick Show," a sports TV and radio program, has received regarding Andrews.

The threats were sent via email on March 26, 29 and 30 from a man in Newport News, VA. One threat talks about shooting her in the face and another (the really scary one, if you ask us) says, "I'm one in a million, she'll never see me coming."

Her attorney Marshall Grossman tells TMZ, "Erin and her family are protected. It is unfortunate that there are sick people who prey on the fears and threaten the well being of others. Erin is not alone among those who have to deal with such predators. Erin is looking forward to the future and will keep all of her commitments including her appearance on 'Dancing With the Stars.' We ask that the privacy of Erin and her family be respected."

Andrews, a sports reporter for ESPN and colleague of Dan Patrick (pictured above with Andrews, right, and her sister Kendra), has recently been in the news because of stalker Michael David Barrett, a man who was caught video taping her through a peephole at a hotel. He has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.
