CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KIIS/LOS ANGELES, syndicated radio god and AMERICAN IDOL host RYAN SEACREST's alleged stalker has been arrested after entering the E! ENTERTAINMENT building FRIDAY. The man, CHIDI BENJAMIN UZOMAH JR. attempted to get into the offices armed with a knife.
UZOMAH is being held by police on suspicion of felony stalking. His bail is set on $150,000.
This isn't the first run-in SEACREST has had with him, as UZOMAH is currently on probation for misdemeanor assault and battery and switchblade possession after he attacked a security guard who was walking SEACREST to his car last month. Because of that incident, he was sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years of probation.
A court hearing on whether to grant a three-year restraining order against the alleged stalker is set for NOVEMBER 17th.
