LAS VEGAS — David Rumsey, a man who is allegedly obsessed with singer and actress Miley Cyrus, was arrested at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, over the weekend.

TMZ says that Rumsey was in the audience to see Cyrus perform when he was spotted by her bodyguards.

Rumsey, 42, made a series of tweets about the singer before her performance, including one where he said he hoped he could meet up with her somewhere besides his room at "motel 6" and another about partying with "2pac, biggie, Prince, Michael Jackson and all those we lost."

He also apologized for hurting her and blamed President Trump.

The bodyguards are familiar with Rumsey because he has reportedly made threats against her in the past.

Cyrus was in town to perform for the annual iHeartRadio festival.

He is currently being held at the Clark County Detention Center. His first appearance is scheduled for this morning.
