Ryan Seacrest has a stalker, and no, it's not a teenage girl with a crush.

Chidi Uzomah, who is a member of special forces in the U.S. Army reserves, was arrested Friday after showing up at the E! offices with a knife asking to see Seacrest.



But what I don't understand is why the Army released an official apology to Seacrest. TMZ spoke with Lt. Col. Nathan Banks, an Army spokesperson, who said, "We apologize to Ryan Seacrest. Pending the outcome of the local investigation, the Army will decide what further action to take. We take all matters of our personnel seriously."

It's not like they can be held accountable for something someone does off-duty, can they? Or am I missing something?

What do you think about this story? Should the Army have reason to apologize?
