Selena Gomez' Alleged Stalker

Placed On 5150 Psychiatric Hold

11/17/2011 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Thomas Brodnicki -- Selena Gomez' alleged stalker who was freed from jail last night -- is no longer a free man, because we've learned he's just been placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold in what has become a desperate attempt to keep him away from the singer.

We just shot video of Brodnicki being taken away in handcuffs ... law enforcement sources tell us he's being taken to a hospital for mental evaluation.

As we first reported ... cops believe Brodnicki poses a real danger to Selena Gomez.  Detectives say Brodnicki told them he's had discussions with God about killing Gomez.  Brodnicki denies making that statement.

Brodnicki ominously told us ... the only thing he wants to touch is Selena.

As we reported ... law enforcement sources tell us they want to place Brodnicki in a conservatorship, and then ship him back to mental health officials in Illinois where he resides -- far away from Selena.

Like someone else said, if that had been one of us regular people nothing would have happened to him until he killed us. Amazing what California courts do for the famous! Yet they can't balance their budget or take care of the homeless in their state. How money talks in the great state of California.

Good luck with Illinois mental health system. Once back here all they're going to do is keep him at Tinley Park Mental Center for about 3 to 6 months and he'll be released bac*****o the streets without any further supervision. Selena better keep her private guards.

A lot of good shipping him back here to Chicago is going to do, considering our esteemed Mayor Emanuel is about to close half of the citys' mental health clinics!

They cannot keep him locked up forever. He hasn't committed a felony. He'll be freed within time and right back at it!
