Shawn Johnson Under Tight Surveillance

3/26/2009 8:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the LAPD will present the case against Robert O'Ryan to the L.A. County D.A., probably sometime this morning. It's likely that stalking and other charges will be filed -- that would almost certainly up O'Ryan's bail....presumably enough to keep him behind bars in the short term.

Shawn Johnson
is playing some serious defense in the wake of an obsessed and armed fan's arrest outside "Dancing With the Stars."

TMZ has learned the 17-year-old has a new personal bodyguard, who's already been spotted shadowing her around town. Sources tell us Shawn's protector is an off-duty police officer.

Robert O'Ryan was arrested after trying to get into Monday night's taping of the show. Police say they found a loaded handgun and a loaded shotgun in his car. O'Ryan remains in custody, held on $35,000 bail.

We're told Shawn, her "Dancing" partner Mark Ballas, and the rest of the cast were informed about O'Ryan after Monday's show.

she will probably watch a lot of "Stupid mario brothers" on youtube to keep her mind off of things. I heard it was one of her favorite pass time.

Please shawn for your sake and all of us who don't like you (but dont wish you harm) quit the show, retire from gymnastics (like you had a shot of returning). Your 15 minutes of fame are over. Go back to your sheltered life. Good Luck. Good bye (from public life)

She's on the show because she lost the all-around and cannot stand not having the attention. How awful to be a has-been at seventeen. The nutjob is not Shawnz fault but trying to be a D-list celebrity is.

I believe we all got it with the first story you posted about someone wanting to be with her. personally, I don't get it. Either way, she shouldn't have to fear for her life, but at the same time, she shouldn't capitalize on all the free press she'll be getting...which she will, because she is a liberal. It's what they do :)

Little Shawn has done more in her short life than any one of us has done in ours. She's a sweet little kid that shouldn't have to deal with obsessive psychos...or the posters here.

If she is a sweet little kid she should go back to the playground and not be grinding with grownups on DWTS.
