LOS ANGELES (AP) - Miley Cyrus has obtained a temporary restraining order against an Arizona man who was recently detained by police while trying to meet the singer-actress.
A Los Angeles judge granted Cyrus the order against 24-year-old Devon Meek on Friday. Cyrus' court filing states that the Sierra Vista man believes the singer is communicating to him through her songs.
The filings say Los Angeles police took Meek into custody May 16 and he was placed under a psychiatric hold. The filings say Meek was arrested outside a property he believed is owned by Cyrus, but the documents don't specify the location.
A police detective wrote in a sworn statement that Meek told officers they should shoot him in the head if he couldn't meet Cyrus.
Meek remains in protective custody.
