A man arrested in California for allegedly trying to break onto the set of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" to meet Shawn Johnson had been ticketed on Interstate 10 in Loxley, Ala.

34-year-old Robert O'Ryan was arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday, and police said a search of his car turned up a shotgun and handgun, both loaded, along with duct tape and love letters.

Five days earlier, he was stopped about 1:30 a.m. for erratic driving in Loxley and talked of his interest in the 17-year-old Johnson.

The officer gave O'Ryan two tickets: one for having no insurance and the other for an expired license plate. Loxley Police Chief Chip Cason said the officer acted properly and didn't see a need to search the vehicle.
