Man Pleads No Contest To Stalking Ryan Seacrest


A man who has repeatedly shown up at Ryan Seacrest's work and events has pleaded no contest to felony stalking.

Chidi Benjamin Uzomah Jr. entered the plea Tuesday in Los Angeles and was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Uzomah was arrested Oct. 30 after he showed up at the E! Entertainment Television headquarters trying to contact Seacrest.

The incident was a violation of a restraining order issued in another case in which Uzomah admitted attacking one of Seacrest's bodyguards at an event.

The popular host of "American Idol" and a radio show obtained a civil restraining order against the 25-year-old.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office says Uzomah will be sentenced on June 14. He faces up to two years in state prison.
