Dancing With the Stars Contestant Stalked by (Psychotic Not Psychic) Fan

Olympic star Shawn Johnson on 'Dancing with the Stars.'

A man who tried to break into the set of 'Dancing with the Stars' in order to get to celebrity dancer Shawn Johnson has been arrested.

Robert O'Ryan, 34, tried to sneak into the set early Tuesday, according to TMZ. He had a pair of loaded guns with him at the time.

The Los Angeles Police Department has not offered specifics on what O'Ryan intended to do, but a pair of loaded guns and duct tape were found in his vehicle.

A restraining order has been issued to protect Olympic athlete Johnson, her parents and her professional dancing partner, Mark Ballas.

According to TMZ, O'Ryan traveled from Florida because he believed Johnson was "speaking to him personally through the television and via ESP, and he will be with her not matter what."

Johnson won the gold medal at the 2008 Olympics for the women's balance beam, as well as the silver medal for women's individual all-around competition.

Now you know why I worry about non-believers not knowing the difference between someone who might really be psychic and a nut who thinks a celebrity is sending a "message" to them!
