Shawn Johnson Stalker Arrested!


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.

  • I was watching this thing on stalkers and they just like are so overcome with love for the person they try to kill them.
    John Lennon.
    Nuff said.

  • aaaahahahaa… for the longest time while reading this I am all stressed out like ‘OMG THATS SO SCARY” and then you just HAD to bring up Alicia Sacramone lol

  • It’s not love in any way shape or form. It’s a delusional disorder. This person is mentally ill.

  • yikes! that is scary. does anyone remember the name of that young actress that was shot by her “fan” when she opened her front door? it was quite a while ago, and she was on a show that was kind of cute. can’t remember the name of the show either…early senility? anyway, these people are so creepy, the way they “love” the person and think they have a relationship even though they have never met. i wonder if people who know them suspect they are unbalanced or if they hide it well.

  • I recently watched that E! special about stalkers… it was Rebecca Schaeffer that was murder. She simply answered her front door at home and was killed by her stalker.

    I see this girl in this pic… and she looks like she is the size of a 10 year old girl. How scary it must be for her… I hope she carries a big ass stick with her at all times. Along with the body guard.

  • i was listening to this on the radio, but they quoted the stalker as saying, “shawn and i were meant to be together.” So i don’t think he was after shawn to kill her.

  • Shawn doesn’t need a stick. The guy is the one that needs it. In hand to hand combat, that little powerhouse would have the guy on the ground beneath her powerful legs and feet.
