Brady Green was arrested in March 2008 after harassing Tyra Banks at her Chelsea studios following the taping of The Tyra Banks Show.

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge James Burke ruled that Green's actions were "knowingly and inherently invalid and the behavior was hounding."

The judge, however, opted not to sentence Chelsea Green to 90 days in jail and instead ordered that the Georgia native get mental treatment.

Hopefully Tyra Banks won't have to look over her shoulder anymore.

In his bench-trial verdict, Burke said Green will have to return to court on June 18, where a place and length of treatment will be made known.

Burke said treatment is "something that can help Green in the future."

On Wednesday, Tyra Banks testified she was scared for her safety on March 18, 2008, after her staff told her Brady Green was in the building - the same man who had been stalking her by sending her flowers and love letters.

Outside court, Green's lawyer Jeffrey Berman said he was "disappointed with the verdict," but was glad the judge "didn't send [Green] to jail."

According to the New York Daily News, the America's Next Top Model host was calm as she told the court how terrified she and her staff were when Brady Green attempted to get past security at the Tyra Banks Show.

The staff wouldn't allow Banks to exit her dressing room.

"'Stop! No! You can't leave,'" she claimed they said. "I know I have fans, but I've never in my entire career had my staff act in this way."

The scary incident has left the 39-year-old Banks shaken to this day: "I fear for my safety," she said. "I feel extremely vulnerable."

Prosecutors say Brady Green even threatened to slash a Tyra Banks employee's throat when the person refused to give up the studio address.

"I don't fear for my life - I fear the safety of my staff," Banks explained. "I fear the safety of my family. I fear the safety of people in my vicinity."

She admitted that since Green's phone calls, love notes and appearance, she has heightened her security, even when she goes for a run.

The defendant's lawyer noted that the star's website urges viewers to write her. But Banks says Green was more aggressive than the average fan.

If convicted, Green faces a maximum of 90 days in prison.
