53-Year-Old Busted for Attempting to Stalk Miley

8/5/2009 11:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The creepiest thing about the 53-year-old guy in this photo isn't the hair -- it's that he's been arrested a second time for allegedly targeting 16-year-old Miley Cyrus.

Mark McLeod -- the same guy who once claimed Miley had been sending him "secret messages" through her TV show -- has been arrested in Georgia on an "attempted stalking" charge.

Back in June, McLeod was warned to stay away from Miley, after a disorderly conduct arrest in which he told cops no one could keep them from "being together." Cops then warned McLeod to keep away from the actress.

But this week, cops say McLeod was spotted hanging around the area where Miley is shooting her new movie -- so they got a warrant and yesterday, they arrested the guy.

We're told McLeod admitted he was trying to get in contact with Miley when he was arrested.

McLeod is currently being held at the Columbia County Detention Center.

As we first reported, Disney got wind of Mark's June arrest -- the one in which he allegedly told cops a slew of crazy stuff about Miley -- and warned cops in L.A. to keep their eyes on him.

Huh? I am thinking about what I said. It's called Common Sense. "posed by them in some sexy clothing"??? Does she have a brain? Her choice to do it. I didn't say she deserved anything. I'm just telling it like it is. You sound like one of those parents who parade their 10 year old around on the beach in a string bikini because "it's cute". So naive.

I am glad they got this guy but I have to say you must have to be famous to have your stalker handled by law enforcememt. They tell me stalking is hard to prove, even with pictures of him following me and eyewitnesses, Polaice and Prosecuters are hard pressed to file charges. I had to insist and throw a fit to have mine arrested with HARD EVIDENCE.. I have been stalked continously for 5 years by an individual and I had to go to court each time and be "raped" on the stand defending myself to get the guy convicted. He spend a day in jail after confession. Then stalked me again within 2 weeks. Spent less than 30 days and got out and did it again. Good luck Miley.

#21 You are right on. That's Michael Anthony from Van Halen. Maybe he is just trying to get a gig in her band and doesn't really want to tie her up in his basement after all. Everyone is just overreacting.

But I wasn't stalking Miley. She was sending me signals through the T.V. set. Didn't you see her winking at me?

I'll get you bloggers for this. Once I get out of this prison cell, I'LL GET YOU ALL.

Probably 1000s of weirdos with the same desire for her. Don't see anyone stalking the other Disney girls do you? Perhaps its because they keep their clothes on and dont take pics with men in their 40s. I find the pics of her with Skankman in the makeup room more alarming than this. That pervo was actually with her. His "little angel sister". EWWWWW

You're all a bunch of fruitcakes. I love reading these silly, brainless, comments. TMZ's readers are always good for a laugh. Keep up the good work. I do, however, wonder how sad your lives must be that you feel the need to put people down and argue non-stop. Yeeeehaaawww!! Well, I got my easy lunch break laugh, back to work I go. Carry on......

Good luck Miley, stay safe. As you can see, by the concerned citizens on here, the world is full of coocoos.

Repeat offender stalkers,especially someone stalking a little girl like Miley as this pathetic sick creep has been doing, ought to be shot by the cops. Why continue to go around and around with people like this? This guy is a threat!

Yes Tyrone.....that is exactly what I am saying...she deserves it as do her parents deserve to be in fear for putting their child out there and allowing her to pose in provactive photo shoots when she is only 16 years old.

38. Oh, so because Miley (a young celeb who is making record company execs rich) is posed by them in some sexy clothing... that means she DESERVES to be kidnapped and God knows what else??

Think about what you're saying!!
