Shawn Johnson's 'Alleged Stalker' To Stand Trial
Robert O'Ryan will stand trial for four of five charges filed against him - including felony stalking, felony commercial burglary and two misdemeanor counts of carrying a loaded firearm in his car. A judge dismissed a fifth charge of attempted kidnapping on Tuesday.
An attorney for O'Ryan argued her client was not a stalker but merely had a "crush" on Johnson, telling the court, "He was a fan inspired to come to Los Angeles with all of his possessions."
Johnson was granted a three-year restraining order against O'Ryan in May, two months after he was arrested for trying to climb a fence to enter the TV studios where the Olympian was participating in the TV talent contest. Authorities later found duct tape, a shotgun, a handgun a knife and a bulletproof vest in his car.
O'Ryan is being held on $220,000 bail and faces an arraignment hearing on October 27th.
