Seacrest Attacker

Pleads Guilty,

Gets Jail Time

9/18/2009 5:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who allegedly choked Ryan Seacrest's bodyguard outside of the Children's Hospital in Orange County on Tuesday just pled guilty to three misdemeanors.

Chidi Uzomah -- who appeared in Orange County Superior Court today via a television feed -- pled guilty to battery, assault and possession of a switchblade. 

He was put on three years probation and must "destroy" all weapons he owns. He was sentenced to 15 days in jail with 4 days credit for time already spent behind bars. But if he messes up, then he could get six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.

The judge said he must stay away from the Children's Hospital and Ryan Seacrest.

I don't understand why destroying weapons is necessary. He can sell them and put some of those funds to mental health, or the poor ol' guv'ment :p

Plus I'm sure some kid out there would love a cheap switchblade. Destroying is not very environmentally-friendly, or kind, or resourceful.

Love, shuffler.
