American Idol host Ryan Seacrestâ€™s stalker is behind bars to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. One several occasions Chidi Uzomah Jr. tried to attack bodyguards, with a weapon to get to the TV and radio star. See more below the photo.
Last year the Uzomah was convicted of the one count of felony assault. This Tuesday he plead no contest and will spend the next 90 days in prison to be mentally assessed. Seacrest was given a temporary restraining order as well. Continue for more details on this situation, including photos and videos.
Ok, so this is what happened. The radio personality was going to an Event in Orange County when his bodyguard was attacked last year. Chidi was convicted of assault. Then in October he was arrested at the E! Entertainment headquarters with a pocket knife. After his assessment period he will face sentencing on June 14th.
Apparently Ryan Seacrestâ€™s stalker really did intimidate him. Well it makes sense, as this guy is 6â€™4 and weighs 200 pounds, while the host is about 5â€™8! And donâ€™t forget the offender also had a knife. This is how Ryan described the event:
“His aggressive and violent efforts to come into physical contact with me are extremely frightening to me,” Seacrest wrote in a declaration to obtain a restraining order. “They have jeopardized not only my personal safety, but also the safety and well-being of those around me.”
I know that is can be pretty common for someone in Hollywood to have people follow them around with cameras or, like Chidi, who take things a little too far. But that doesnâ€™t make it right and doesnâ€™t make it any less frightening.
