Calif. - A man who assaulted a security guard who tried to stop him
from getting into a car with “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest has
been sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years probation.
Benjamin Uzomah Jr., 25, of Lakewood was sentenced Friday after
pleading guilty in Orange County Superior Court to three misdemeanours:
assault, battery and possession of a switchblade knife. He was ordered
to stay away from Seacrest.
Uzomah tried to enter Seacrest's
vehicle on Tuesday as Seacrest left a charity appearance at Children's
Hospital of Orange County.
Seacrest pulled away and was not involved.
