Ah, to be sixteen years old, famous and well, be followed around by an obsessed fan? It's not exactly the life that Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus was prepared for when she went into show business. Lucky for her, the law is on her side.
The teen sensation has recently been involved in some nasty business with a stalker, this 53-year-old man claiming to be her husband. Mark McLeod, who kept showing up at the set of Miley's new movie The Last Song, was finally taken into custody. He was put under charges of criminal attempted stalking after being taken from his home in Appling, Ga. last Tuesday.
spoke to Tybee Island Police Chief Jim Price, who said: "We had an incident Sunday afternoon. He was down in the area where they were doing the filming and had staging equipment, asking people around the neighborhood where Miley lives. We felt there was probably cause at that point to obtain an arrest warrant."
McLeod had already made an appearance in municipal court, swearing not to return to Tybee Island. He was put on a $50,000 bail if he promised to stay away from Cyrus and her family.
It was in June 22 when Miley's stalker was first busted under charges of disorderly conduct, as he trespassed on the Georgia set in the hopes of speaking to the Hannah Montana
star. He even proclaimed that the two were engaged.
"We're supposed to be together and we couldn't stop it," the man was quoted in the arresting officer's report. "Our eyes met at her concert and we both knew. I walked straight through security and up to her bus. Billy Ray was standing there. He shook my hand and said you're the good man we've been praying for."
He then went on to send numerous letters to Miley Cyrus, which were said to be in the form of "secret messages" on her web site. Though he was put behind bars then, McLeod was later released from the Chatham County jail due to overcrowding. Unfortunately for him, TMZ.com has reported that Miley has taken precautionary measures against him. She was finally granted a restraining order against McLeod, who is due in court on the first of September to answer to recent charges.
