Shawn Johnson's Alleged Stalker

3/26/2009 10:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained photos of Robert O'Ryan -- the man accused of stalking Shawn Johnson. You will see him in court shortly, and he now looks more like Charles Manson than the clean cut dude you're looking at.

Launch photos

O'Ryan, 34, was arrested Tuesday morning after trying to sneak on to the set of "Dancing With the Stars," allegedly with two loaded guns and duct tape in his car.

He has been charged with one felony count of stalking and two misdemeanor counts of carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle.

As for who O'Ryan is....he lived in a trailer park in Yulee, Florida. He got an mechanical engineering degree from the University of Florida. But things didn't go well. He was reclusive and walked with a cane after a bad car accident. He wouldn't even go to the pot luck dinners. He ended up abandoning the trailer and moving in with his mom. Neighbors there say the last time they saw him -- 3 weeks ago -- he was talking to a tree.

I think this man should be put away for life. You can put a paper on him keeping him away from her. But that doesn't help. They can find ways to do it. Maybe if a law was passed saying just being a one time offender can put you in jail for the rest of your life and do it so they can't get out is the only way this girl can be safe and feel free.
Thank you

she should just go ahead and spread her legs for him and let him get his rocks off a few hundred times, then he won't be a stalker any more. see?...problem solved.

He's a schizophrenic that can't keep his symptoms under control. He should be treated in a psychiatric hospital.

Wow that is really scary, Poor Shawn. She's so sweet and such a good dancer. It's just goes to show that phycho paths can look like a normal person. This guy looks like a normal clean cut person. Not a deranged stalker. Stalkers can look like anyone. I think most people assume they would be ugly but this is proof that theory isn't true.

whoa he has schitzophrenia is he cant tell the difference between real and fake. clearly shawn johnson has no idea who he is and dosnt want to marry him or have babies. the 2 dont know eachother. its ok to dream about your favorite celebrity but theres a line you cross. you dont attempt to meet them to wisk them off their feet to marry you. or bring a gun to kill them. this guy is dangerous. and very immature. 16 yr olds dream about celebrities not grown men..he needs to be in mental health care, probably a hospital for a long time to keep himself safe and away from society. he needs to be locked away because he cant be safe on the street.

we don't want to buy cosmetics pushed by Rihana not only she just got tattoos of guns on her body which for me it's promoting gun violence, especially after being a victim of battery.

Please complain:

anything i like    

TMZ, I am a little disappointed. This 'stalker' is hearing voices, and manifesting other signs of mental illness, according to the news. Why would you poke fun of an ill person, who can't help his actions. If not for him, feel for his family, who are also victims, and back off!!!

I wonder how they get pictures like this, I have no idea. I dont see the need to mention that he used to live in a trailer park because whats wrong with that? Some people dont have enough money to afford other housing. Its sad that he ended up like this, luckily he was caught before he harmed anyone. Hopefully he gets the help he needs. And all these other comments on here are inappropriate and stupid, I really wish some people would grow up. Thats all.

He lost his mind because he could not keep a job; they imported the engineers from INDIA. paid them $5. and let the American go.

I don't know, but it seems that every person that has a genious brain, seems to go off the deep end and end up talking to trees all of the sudden. Remember that move "Beautiful LIfe". Also, if you ever heard the song "Layla" from Eric Clapton, latter half part of the song is a beautiful piano medley. The guy was basically a genious producer, he ended up killing himself because of some mental issues. It seems that the more developed the brain becomes, the freakier it gets.
