The man accused of stalking E! TV personality Ryan Seacrest, Chidi Uzomah, has pleaded not guilty to one felony stalking charge and two misdemeanor charges of disobeying a court order, TMZ reports.
The judge also granted a protective order stating that Uzomah must remain 500 yards from Ryan at all times. Uzomah, an active member of the U.S. Army, is accused of stalking Ryan between Sept. 15 and Oct. 30. He was arrested at the E! building last week in possession of a knife and looking for Ryan.
In September, Uzomah pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors after he choked Ryan’s bodyguard outside of a hospital in Orange County.
He’s due back in court on November 16.
