On Teen Mom OG, Bristol Palin got the latest scare concerning her longtime stalker, Shawn Christy. Bristol was spending the first night in her new home in Austin, Texas, when she got a text informing her that Christy had broken into the Kentucky home of her ex-husband Dakota Meyer. Christy reportedly stole food and a vehicle. No one was home at the time of the break-in.
Bristol lamented to her sister Piper about living so far from family and friends. “I get, like, maybe four hours of sleep as it is because I’ve had this constant threat for 10 years,” she told Piper.
Meyer later told Bristol that he’d been up all night with the U.S. Marshals and FBI, and that the Secret Service had just gotten involved. Christy was already wanted for failing to appear in court on an assault case. On top of that and stalking the Palins, he had threatened on social media to “shoot President Trump in the head.” After a monthslong manhunt, Christy was arrested in September in Mifflin Township, Ohio, just outside of Columbus. Though he’s now in custody, the threat at the time was very real.
This is one of the stalkers who’s tormented my daughters for years… following them, threatening them, years of harassing and scaring the hell out of them – as we’ve explained to the FBI for years. May justice finally be served.

The Palin family has a long history with Christy. They took out a restraining order against him in 2010, and he was arrested just miles from their Alaska home in 2011. Christy’s not the only stalker Bristol has had to deal with. In 2014, a Florida man, Peter Ferrero, was arrested after sending her thousands of messages on Facebook and showing up at her home in Alaska.
