Man with Knife

Arrested in Seacrest Attack

9/17/2009 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man with a knife has been charged with a crime after allegedly attacking Ryan Seacrest's security guard.


It happened outside the Children's Hospital in Orange County earlier this week. Ryan had just finished making an appearance. The alleged attacker -- Chidi Uzomah -- approached Ryan and asked for an autograph. Ryan obliged and then walked to his car.

We're told Uzomah got in between Ryan and his car. The security guard tried blocking Uzomah and then Uzomah allegedly began choking the guard and fighting him.

Uzomah -- who is 25 years old, 6'4" and 200 lbs -- was subdued and arrested. Cops found a switchblade knife on him.

Uzomah will be charged by the O.C. D.A. with assault and battery and possession of a switchblade.

Uzomah is being held on $25,000 bail.

It was probably a dull one inch keychain knife and the press blows it up as if he was swinging a dangerous ninja sword with a razor sharp blade. He's black, so of course he attacked little Ryan Seacrest right after Ryan was doing his angelic good deed at a Children's Hospital. The whole wholesome white guy and the bad, mean black villian scenario again.

In reality, the guy probably dropped his crackpipe and was reaching to get it. Of course, Seacrest got scared and cried like a b*tch. This whole story is blown way out of proportion. Ryan Seacrest is the biggest girly drama b*tch in Hollywood.

Why is someone attacking Seacrest a crime? I'd call it a public service!

He should hire Gov Arnold to be his bodyguard. I hear CA needs the extra money.

He should have asked Ryan out on a date. They would make a cute couple.
