In June of 2016, Top Gun star Kelly McGillis took to Facebook to share a home invasion story. As per her account, McGillis returned home to find a light on and her front door open. As soon as she entered her house, a deranged woman, Laurence Marie Dorn, charged the actress, accusing her of stalking her on Twitter. 

"I ran out the front door and called 911. She ran out after me and began punching and scratching me trying to grab the phone out of my hand. I began screaming as loud as I could hoping someone somewhere might hear me. I still had my car keys in my hand so I set off the car alarm. That distracted her enough to throw the cell and try to deal with the keys. More fighting ensued...I finally broke away, got in the truck and drove off trying to find a neighbor to call 911. There was no one around since it was Friday night, so I chased someone in a car, kept flashing my lights and honking the horn. They finally pulled over and she made the 911 call for me. A truly good Samaritan," McGillis wrote.
