A 53-year-old Georgia man has pleaded guilty to resisting police outside the set of a Miley Cyrus movie after prosecutors agreed to drop charges that he tried to stalk the teen pop star.

A State Court judge sentenced Mark McLeod to 24 months probation Friday. He was also ordered to undergo a mental health assessment and stay away from Cyrus.

McLeod had been jailed since Aug. 4 after police said he twice traveled to Tybee Island on the Georgia coast looking for the 16-year-old "Hannah Montana" star as she filmed the movie "The Last Song." Investigators said he resisted officers who tried to remove him.

Prosecutors offered McLeod a deal after a grand jury declined to indict him on felony charges.

McLeod's attorney says his client never posed a threat.
