A man obsessed with Shawn Johnson has been arrested after jumping a fence in a bid to get on the set of Dancing With the Stars, People reports. Two loaded guns, duct tape, love letters and memorabilia featuring the 17-year-old Olympic gymnast were found in the man's car after he was stopped by security guards who found him roaming studio grounds.

"He believes that she speaks to him personally through the television set and through ESP, and that they will have a child together," Johnson's mother wrote in a request for a restraining order. The man remains in custody and a restraining order has been issued ordering him to keep away from Johnson and her dancing partner. (More Shawn Johnson stories.)
