(LOS ANGELES) — A man was arrested at Miley Cyrus’ Los Angeles home after allegedly jumping her fence and trying to force his way into her home clutching a pair of scissors.
Video obtained by TMZ shows police detaining the man inside Cyrus’ property, after spotting him in the bushes inside the wall around her home. In the video, he tells the officers his name is Jason Rivera and that he is carrying scissors in his back pocket. He’s wearing a large red heart on a necklace around his neck.
He also tells the police that he and Cyrus “have been friends for five years,” before being put in the squad car.
He told authorities he and 19-year-old Cyrus had been secretly married for years, ABC News Los Angeles station KABC-TV reports.
The pop star wasn’t home at the time of the arrest. Relatives staying at the Studio City area home made the 911 call.
Charges have not yet been filed against the man.
