Selena Gomez's alleged stalker, Thomas Brodnicki, has been placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, which can be enforced if a person is deemed to have a mental disorder which makes them a danger to themselves and/or others.
Selena Gomez's alleged stalker has been placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
Thomas Brodnicki - who allegedly told a therapist God had ordered him to kill the 19-year-old star - was released from jail on Wednesday (16.11.11) as a judge couldn't find enough evidence against him.
However, yesterday afternoon (17.11.11), Brodnicki was handcuffed by police in Los Angeles and taken to a mental hospital where he was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, which can be enforced if a person is deemed to have a mental disorder which makes them a danger to themselves and/or others.
Law enforcement sources told Hollywoodlife.com: "Thomas Brodnicki has been taken to a hospital for mental evaluation. We want to place him in a conservatorship and then send him back to mental health officials in Illinois where he resides."
Earlier in the day, Brodnicki spoke of his obsession with Selena and said they would one day be together.
He told TMZ.com: "I'm very anti-material ... I don't like even touching anything that isn't Selena Gomez.
"Selena Gomez and I are the holy chosen ones of God. I'm not overly concerned if I meet (Selena) in the flesh because it may be like scripture says ... 'No man has seen the face of God' ... Maybe us being together is too much like seeing the face of God."
Brodnicki - who has a criminal history of stalking - insists he won't try and see Selena because she has a temporary restraining order against him.
A hearing on whether the order should be made permanent will be held on November 23.
