Selena Gomez' Alleged Stalker

LAPD Says It's Not Over yet

Thomas Brodnicki
-- Selena Gomez' alleged stalker who was sprung from jail yesterday -- remains a real threat and the LAPD has a Plan B -- this according to law enforcement sources.

The judge in the felony stalking case ruled Wednesday ... there wasn't sufficient evidence that Brodnicki intended to convey his death threats to Selena -- and that's an element of the crime.  Brodnicki did, however, tell cops and his shrink that he had discussions with God about killing Selena.

We've learned LAPD's Threat Management Unit will send detectives to re-interview Brodnicki and, if appropriate, place him on a mental health hold.  Detectives would then go to court for a conservatorship, making Brodnicki a ward of the county.  Once that happens, they would contact mental health officials in Illinois -- the State where Brodnicki resides -- and ask them to take custody of him.  At that point Brodnicki would be sent packing to Illinois -- far away from Selena.

Detectives believe Brodnicki is still a danger, although they can't provide special protection because the criminal case has been dismissed.  We're told Selena is currently being protected by private security.

Different Rules Apply    

Remember Rebecca Shaeffer? This guy is a loon and she should be scared. Worth every penny of protection, but for how long does she have to do this? Aren't we supposed to get help when we are physically threatened?

Charley - 1st of all the article says it is PRIVATE PROTECTION. Secondly just because your friend got hurt so should Selena? Thirdly she is just barely out of childhood so where do you get off calling her a wh---? You have major issues.

Once again a great example of Police over using their powers. They couldn't prove to a judge that he was indeed stalking and a danger to her, so the become the judge and jury and have him locked up on a Psych hold... And for all you whack jobs saying that the police should be able to do what they are doing, I'm sorry, he hasn't committed a crime. It's called due process.
