A Miley Cyrus fan ended up in handcuffs after he tried to get a little too close to the star -- by sneaking backstage at a show in Nebraska.

Tucker Salvensen made it into a restricted area at Omaha's CenturyLink Center and left the singer a personal note. He also tweeted her to reveal where to look for it. The 18-year-old wrote, "I need to meet you. You have helped me so much. Your music gave me all the answers I was looking for when my heart got broke. Miley, I love you...please let me meet you."

He told officers that he had obtained a VIP pass from a truck driver working on Miley's tour and thought it gave him access to all areas. He ended up missing the show while in police custody, but said he had tickets for another show next month.
