A photographer was arrested for investigation of stalking after he allegedly followed Barbra Streisand and her husband, actor James Brolin, twice while they were driving. The couple headed directly to a Los Angeles County sheriff's station Saturday afternoon when they noticed they were being followed by somebody in a van -- later identified as Wendal Wall, 28 -- as they traveled on Highway 101. Hours later, they noticed him following them again on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, where they have a home. They flagged down a deputy, who stopped the driver. Wendal was held for investigation of stalking on $1 million bail, police said.
