A man who claimed to be Miley Cyrus’ husband is facing criminal charges of trespassing and resisting arrest after police found him in the bushes near the singer-actress’s house. The L.A. County City Attorney filed to misdemeanor trespassing counts and one count of resisting arrest against the suspect today. Allegedly, the man attempted to enter the property without permission. Police officers found the man after receiving a call about a prowler at Cyrus’ home.

When police appeared on the scene, the man attempted to flee and hide in some nearby bushes. The arrest was captured on video, and the man said, “I am a friend of Miley Cyrus. I am. She’s my wife. I and Miley have been friends for five years.” Sources claim that the man is obsessed with the singer-actress and may have a court order filed against him. Cyrus was not home when the man attempted to invade the property.

Simply put, trespassing is a criminal offense that involves entering someone else’s property without their permission. In California, trespassing is considered an infringement on an individual’s personal rights to their property. According to the California penal code, an individual commits criminal trespass when he/she refuses to leave someone else’s property or attempts to occupy the land without permission. This law refers to entering and occupying any real property with the owner’s consent.

This includes buildings and structures. Trespassing is punishable by jail time and up to $1,000 fine – if it is charged as a misdemeanor. It may also be charged as an infraction. An infraction is punishable as a misdemeanor but is usually considered a lesser offense. For example, a trespassing infraction may result from simply ignoring a private property sign. On the other hand, aggravated trespassing is a serious crime that may be charged as a felony. If convicted of aggravated trespassing, an individual may face substantial time in jail.
