An obsessed fan has been taken into custody by the Los Angeles Police Department after he travelled across America to meet Miley Cyrus and posted a string of bizarre messages on Facebook.

The unnamed man from Milwaukee wrote several posts on Facebook indicating that he was planning on travelling to see the star, had her address and that he “knew the way in”.

He also thanked Miley for “getting rid of Liam”, even though the pair appears to be happily engaged with no signs of relationship drama.

The folks at the Milwaukee Police Department reportedly got in touch with their friends in LA after seeing the posts and on Monday, the man was found and taken into custody for a psychological evaluation.

Creepy stuff, Miley hasn’t made an official comment on the arrest yet but we bet she’d be pretty shaken up.
