hilary_duff_stalker-1Hilary Duff's alleged 18-year-old stalker has been arrested and sources tell TMZ the bust occurred after the man threatened to kill Duff this weekend.

Manhattan Beach cops arrested Maksim Miakovsky, an 18-year-old Russian emigre, at a Residence Inn last Friday. He was booked on charges of making criminal threats and stalking.

TMZ first reported last month that Duff and her boyfriend, Joel Madden, were terrified that Miakovsky would do harm to them. Duff and Madden asked for a restraining order, alleging that MiakovskyStalker gallery: click to launch "has stated his intention of 'removing' his 'enemies' (i.e., those who prevent him from being with her), has stated his intention of purchasing a weapon, and has threatened to kill himself and to engage in dramatic actions to get her attention."

Sources tell TMZ that last Friday, a private investigator from Sunset Protective Services contacted Miakovsky at the Residence Inn and Miakovsky stated his intention of killing Duff on Sunday at an event she was scheduled to attend.

According to legal papers filed by Duff, Miakovsky came to the U.S. "for the sole purpose of meeting and becoming romantically involved with Ms. Duff."

Miakovsky is currently being held on $200,000 bail at the Manhattan Beach jail. He's scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

What happened to Hillary Duff! She looked so cute and wholesome before, now she could pass for a street walker (albeit, a high end one).

That Russian guy is nuts, doesn't anyone know that the best way to a girl's heart is through White Castle... hehe.

and so.......what's the maximum jail time that this clown could face? Whatever it is there is nothing to prevent him from doing what he wants to do if he intends to do so. I think he should be deported.

How horrible scary for this poor girl. I don't care what you think of her, what if it was your daughter, sister, or mother? These lunatic stalkers are way too crazy to trust them to be able to behave once released. It’s like child molesters, they'll never change. Both should be put down like rabid dogs.
