Gun-toting Dancing with the Stars fan arrested

Olympic gold medalist Shawn JohnsonA man stalking Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson claimed he was “meant to be” with her after he was arrested early Tuesday morning trying to sneak on to the set of Dancing With the Stars. Robert O’Ryan, 34, had a loaded .45 handgun, a loaded shotgun and duct tape in his car. Johnson, 17, is competing on the current season of the show. O’Ryan, who allegedly told LAPD that he had “packed all his belongings and permanently left Florida to drive out here to be with [Johnson],”  was booked on suspicion of carrying a loaded firearm in public and is being held in custody on $35,000 bail. He has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Johnson, not to communicate with her and not to harass her parents or dancing partner Mark Ballas. Johnson’s parents have since hired an off-duty police officer as her personal bodyguard. ~ movi_alex

    So, he had two guns in his vehicle but was only booked on “suspicion”? THEN, to top it all off, if he has or can find someone who has $35,000 they will let the freaking nutcase out?

    Huh, that’s a weird comment, if you don’t like her comments, don’t read them.
    Anyway, this guy must be pretty sick in the head, saying he was “meant to be with her”, carrying a gun, etc, I mean, she’s 17 years old for God’s sake, she’s just started her life, and already she’s got a freak like this after her!

    Based on your comments, you are obviously a regular here. I am not agreeing or disagreeing with you but can’t help wonder why you didn’t use your regular name. That way Nancy will know where she stands with whom. We’ve all had disagreements here and exchanged words, but each knows who they are dealing with, why have you hidden your “identity” here?

    AHAHAHAHA! Sounds like someone is a little upset because I gave my opinion first! Why don’t you put your money where your big mouth is and let me know what is “nonsense” about my comments today. Oh, and not that it’s any of your business but, I worked from 5:30 am to noon today and then shopped until I picked my son up after school…care to pay me for my time? Didn’t think so…so bite me! 😉 Like Tributegirl said, if you don’t like it, don’t read it…and don’t f-ing tell me what to do with MY time!

    Oh….here’s something for ya…click my name.
