Corey Clark is in trouble again.

The controversial former “American Idol” contestant, who was bounced off of Season 2 of the series and claimed to have a sexual relationship with then-“Idol” judge Paula Abdul, was arrested Wednesday on charges of aggravated harassment and violation of a court order, the Yuma, Arizona, police department told TheWrap.

According to a police report, the arrest stemmed from a Sept. 17 incident at the Yuma County Courthouse, when Clark confronted and argued with a man who was with his estranged wife Monica Clark, and who he believed that Monica had a relationship with.

Monica told police that a court order only allowed Clark to contact her by email and third party, and only in reference to their children. However, Monica produced a number of emails that overstepped those bounds, including one that stated, “You still fill my heart with so much joy whenever I get the chance to see you. I wish things were different with us. I wish things were better for us.”

Monica also told police that she believed Clark was stalking her because “he was watching her for hours while she ate” at a restaurant following the alleged court incident.

According to police, Clark was argumentative after being taken into custody.

“While processing Clark he continued to argue over the fact that he could email [his wife] anything he wanted,” the report reads.

Clark was disqualified from “Idol” after producers determined that he had not disclosed a previous arrest record.
