CHIDI UZOMAH JR. has pleaded no contest to stalking RYAN SEACREST. UZOMAH was convicted last year of assaulting a security guard who was assigned to protect SEACREST, reports THE LOS ANGELES TIMES. TUESDAY (3/9), he pleaded no contest to one count of felony stalking.
UZOMAH will undergo a 90-day psychiatric evaluation, then he'll head back to L.A. Superior Court for sentencing on JUNE 14th. He faces up to two years in prison.
LOS ANGELES police Detective ROSIBEL SMITH told THE TIMES SEACREST told her that he was "very intimidated by Mr. UZOMAH's presence, by his size" after being informed that the defendant had shown up to see him at the E! building. UZOMAH is 6 feet 4 inches tall and 200 pounds."
