Police say Barret videotaped Andrews naked by aiming a cell phone camera through an altered peephole in the door of her hotel room. Parts of the video were distributed on the Internet, sparking a national frenzy and forcing Andrews to go into temporary seclusion to escape the media blitz.

Now, Combined Insurance Co., the Glenview, Ill. insurancy company that employs Barret said he is suspended indefinitely, according to spokeswoman Amy Burrell-Tichy.

Barrett was released on $4500 bond yesterday, according to the Seattle Times.

Andrews is back on the air with ESPN.
