Miley Cyrus was apparently plush with trouble this morning after cops say some weirdo showed up on her doorstep with a token of love that was full of cotton ... and it landed the guy in jail.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ 52-year-old Alexander Karddalian was arrested early Friday near Miley's L.A.-area home -- this after they got a call around 1 AM on a report of a suspicious person Miley and co. suspected might've been somebody she's dealt with before.
As it turns out, they were right ... 'cause Miley previously got a restraining order against Karddalian for something similar last year ... and he was ordered to stay away from her.
Now, we're told he showed up at her front gate and was trying to give something to MC -- specifically, a stuffed animal of some sort, according to our sources. Doesn't sound like the guy got far though ... we're told Miley security detained him and waited for LAPD to arrive.
When cops showed up, we're told they hauled him away and ended up booking him for violating a court order. Remember -- Miley claims she's been dealing with this Karddalian since at least 2018 ... and notes he did some time in San Quentin before allegedly pulling up at her crib in 2022 upon release.
The last scary part about this ... we're told Miley was home for the latest dustup -- but luckily she didn't encounter the dude herself. Fortunately, her team was able to handle it.
