A man charged with trying to stalk teen star Miley Cyrus told an investigator he planned on returning to her Georgia movie set and "finishing things," her security guard told a judge Tuesday.
Municipal Court Judge Steven Scheer refused a request to lower Mark McLeod's $55,200 bond and ruled there was sufficient evidence to send the case to Chatham County State Court.
Scheer said he felt McLeod, 53, had no chance of getting to the 16-year-old "Hannah Montana" star because she "can afford the best protection money can buy," but he feared McLeod might be a threat to others.
Cyrus recently finished filming "The Last Song" on Tybee Island and in neighboring Savannah. Police say McLeod came to the island twice, once in June, then again this month asking where he could find her.
Robert Merriman, a former Savannah-Chatham County police detective hired by Walt Disney Pictures to protect Cyrus, testified that McLeod made a taped statement to a sheriff's investigator in Columbia County, where he was arrested at his home Aug. 4.
"He said that he knew the filming was going to be ending soon and he was going to be coming back to Tybee Island and finishing things," said Merriman, who told the judge that he interpreted the comment as a threat.
"I can't deny him bond, but if I could I would because I do feel he's a danger," Scheer said.
