Big Brother alum Mike "Boogie" Malin has been found guilty of a felony for stalking his former costar Dr. Will Kirby. The 50-year-old — who won the seventh season of the reality competition series — was sentenced to 2 years of probation.
Malin and the dermatologist, 48, famously formed the "Chilltown" alliance during the second season of Big Brother, which Kirby won. Though the two reunited for 2006’s Big Brother: All-Stars, their friendship eventually ended.
Malin was arrested in August of 2019, according to court documents. The bar owner pleaded not guilty to stalking Kirby at first, but later withdrew his original plea and changed it "no contest."
During an April 2021 court appearance, Malin was sentenced to a two years of probation. The judge ordered him to spend three days in a Los Angeles County jail, pay a total of $70 in fees and serve 30 days in a residential treatment program chosen for him.
The former TV personality must pay $300 restitution to the court, “effective upon the revocation of probation” and cooperate with his probation officer while under “mandatory supervision.” The judge also ordered the troubled reality star to “make restitution” to Kirby “in an amount to be determined at a hearing.”
In addition, the judge ordered Malin to "maintain residence as approved by the probation officer" and “keep the probation officer advised of his residence and work and home telephone numbers at all times.” He is also required to complete 160 hours of community service, submit DNA for a database and is prohibited "from owning, purchasing, receiving, possessing or having, under his/her custody or control, any firearms, ammunition and ammunition feeding devices."
After being granted a restraining order in September 2019, Dr. Kirby was also granted an additional 10-year order preventing Malin from coming near him, his family or any of his businesses and clinics.
On Wednesday, June 2, Kirby's attorney issued a statement on the doctor's behalf stating, “We are grateful to the criminal justice system for holding Mr. Malin accountable for his actions. The crime of stalking is often underreported. There is absolutely no shame in asking for help and reporting troubling behavior. Dr. Kirby respectfully asks for privacy for he and family at this time.”
Malin has had a troubling past few years. The New Hampshire native was arrested in November 2020 for driving under the influence in Las Vegas that summer. The star was spotted allegedly "swerving his vehicle" and "nearly hit another car." He then proceeded to "fail a sobriety test" and was charged with possession of a drug without a prescription, having an open alcohol container and unlawfully texting before being released on his own recognizance. The star was also sued for embezzlement back in 2011 and was later ordered to pay $800,000.
