53-year-old Barry Zarculia was charged with aggravated stalking after reports of his inappropriate behavior over recent months piled up and he was witnessed violating his order of protection.
On October 3rd, Metro Nashville Police went to the home of Valerie Parker, located at 1212 Battlefield Drive, after she reported she was being stalked by Nashville Musician Barry Zarculia, who has been previously called out for inappropriate stalking behavior in 2017. She told officers that between July 9th and July 28th she received several messages from Barry, who was also trying to figure out where she lived by following her home. Barry reportedly sent Parker messages calling her anorexic, and he told her, “the only reason [I] like [your] flat chest is because it would be good to stick [my] dick in.” Valerie told him several times to leave her alone and messaged his Instagram account telling him the things he was saying to her were inappropriate and unwelcome.
She went on to tell officers she had a temporary order of protection against Barry, but he would often show up to where she was and make inappropriate comments. One such time, she went to Radnor Lake located at 1060 Ottercreek Road, where she saw him walking on the trail leading her to hide in a bush until he left. Park Ranger Dameon Fontenot reported that Barry had approached him and told him that, “I just saw a dumb cunt I didn’t want to see today!” before leaving the park. Valerie then approached the park ranger and ask him if he would be able to walk her to her car, and during the walk, Barry returned and told the two of them, “Stay away from me crazy ass! Going to see you in court.”
Barry Zarculia was charged with aggravated stalking. On October 4th, he was freed on a $3,000 bond.
