Man Arrested for Allegedly Stalking Olympian Shawn Johnson

March 26, 2009

(ChattahBox) — It’s a dangerous world out there, even for celebrities.  Some dude was arrested for allegedly  stalking Olympian Shawn Johnson while she was working on the set of Dancing with the Stars. Robert O’Ryan, 34, allegedly jumped a fence at CBS Studios in L.A. where the show was filming, but was caught by security.  Police later searched O’Ryan’s car and made a scary discovery.  They found a shotgun, a handgun as well as duct tape,  love letters, clippings and other information about Johnson.  Perhaps a kidnapping was planned? O’Ryan later admitted he was attempting to meet the 17-year-old, reportedly telling cops that he had “packed all his belongings and permanently left Florida to drive out here to be with (Johnson).” Johnson’s mother, Teri, requested and received a temporary restraining order from the L.A. Superior Court on Wednesday. O’Ryan has been ordered to stay 300 feet (91 metres) away from Johnson who now has a bodyguard, and not to harass her parents or TV dancing partner Mark Ballas. His bail has been set at $35,000.
