Seacrest Alleged Stalker -- Army Infantryman

11/2/2009 4:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: TMZ just spoke with Lt. Col. Nathan Banks, an Army spokesperson, who told us: "We apologize to Ryan Seacrest. Pending the outcome of the local investigation, the Army will decide what further action to take. We take all matters of our personnel seriously."

Ryan Seacrest
's alleged stalker is scarier than first thought -- we've learned he has serious military training.

Seacrest Alleged Stalker -- Army Infantryman

Chidi Uzomah, Jr. is currently in the Army Reserves in Upland, California. He was trained as a front line soldier and assigned to the 426th Civil Affairs Battalion -- a part of the Army special forces, which is attached to the Green Berets.

Before Uzomah's gig in the 426th, he served in the California Army National Guard from April 2005 through April 2009. He was honorably discharged and then transferred to the Army Reserves.

Uzomah was an ROTC Cadet at Cal State Dominguez Hills.



We spoke with a honcho at the ROTC today, who said, "I am painfully aware of our connection with Uzomah." He would not elaborate.

Ryan Seacrest's attorney would do well to ask the court for the kind of GPS monitoring that includes a Victim Notification device that Ryan would have to alert him if the guy would come within a mile of him.

See Victim Notification Devices for restraining orders. A "must" in this case.

If he has infantry training, then his hands, legs and anything he uses (a knife or banana peel) are considered deadly weapons. Therefore, he should have gotten no less than a FELONY plea deal for his assault on Ryan's bodyguard. Then he wouldn't have had the opportunity for this "stalking" B.S. Some prosecutor didn't do his/her job. What a surprise.

Why are you guys obsessing over a stalker? This will just cause more freaks to want to stalk celebrities just to be on TMZ! Enough. What's going on with the MJ investigation? Since you all seem to have the inside scoop.

TMZ do your homework before you make yourself look stupid....The 426th is a humanitarian group,i.e. supply medicine, books, build schools, and homes in 3rd world countries, they are as far from a Special Forces Team as you can get.....
