A 53-year-old man who has been charged with attempting to stalk teen pop star and actress Miley Cyrus is to appear in a US court on Tuesday. Mark McLeod was arrested earlier this month after trying to contact the 16-year-old while on a film set on Tybee Island, on Georgias coast. He had been previously arrested in June on charges of attempted stalking, disorderly conduct and obstruction. Cyrus finished work on new Disney film, The Last Song, last week. Police said Mr McLeod visited Tybee Island twice in June looking for the Hannah Montana actress and tried to breach a security perimeter around the movie set. Mr McLeod claimed he had met Cyrus 18 months earlier and that she had accepted his marriage proposal. He is said to have told police that Cyruss father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, approved of their relationship and that Cyrus had sent him secret messages through her TV show. He was arrested again on 4 August after security men reported he had returned to the beachside movie set. Cyrus has become a global superstar since first appearing in Disneys Hannah Montana TV show in 2006. The singer embarks on her first UK tour later this year, beginning at Londons O2 Arena in December. She is about to begin a 45-date north American tour which kicks off on 14 September in Oregon. - BBC
