Shawn Johnson has back-flipped her way into somebody’s heart! A man was arrested on Tuesday near the set of Dancing with the Stars, after he jumped the fence and tried to meet Shawn.
Robert O’Ryan, 34, allegedly jumped a fence at CBS Studios in L.A. where the show was filming, but was caught by security. Johnson’s mother, Teri, requested and received a temporary restraining order from the L.A. Superior Court on Wednesday.
Approached by security while roaming the studio grounds, O’Ryan admitted he was attempting to meet Johnson, but after Johnson was contacted and said she didn’t know O’Ryan, he changed his story and said he was there to meet Steve-O, according to court documents. No one in Steve-O’s group knew O’Ryan, either.
O’Ryan allegedly told LAPD that he had “packed all his belongings and permanently left Florida to drive out here to be with [Johnson],” Teri Johnson wrote in the request for a restraining order.
Among the disturbing items allegedly found in the man’s car: A loaded shotgun, a loaded Colt .45 handgun and Johnson memorabilia.
Man, thank goodness Steve-O’s sober these days, right? A wasted Steve-O would have been like, “Uh, yeah, I probably know him, whatever, let him on in.”
Said Shawn’s mother Teri: “This incident has caused us severe emotional distress, we have been on the move ever since and have not been able to rest at all for fear that this disturbed person will attempt to make good on his statements and attempt to harm my daughter and possibly us as well.”
I completely understand their fear. What I don’t understand is why anyone would want to kill Shawn Johnson. I mean, if you’re gonna go after one of those girls, you go after Alicia Sacramone, right? At least Shawn stayed on the damn balance beam.
