Ryan Seacrest Stalker Chidi Uzomah Arrested With Knife Outside E! Building

A knife-totin’ man was arrested for allegedly stalking American Idol host Ryan Seacrest inside the E! building on Friday.
On Friday, the armed fan was spotted outside Seacrest’s office just after 10 AM. He was quickly detained by E! security before being arrested by Los Angeles Police officials.

In September, police arrested Uzomah after he tried to enter Seacrest’s vehicle as the TV host and radio DJ left a charity appearance at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Uzomah pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors: assault, battery and possession of a switchblade knife, stemming from his first run-in with Seacrest. Orange County police Sgt. Dan Adams told The AP at the time that Uzomah choked one of the guards, who nearly became unconscious.

After pleading guilty to the three counts, Uzomah was sentenced to 15 days in jail, three years probation, and ordered to stay away from Seacrest.
