FL Man Arrested for Stalking MSNBC’s Tamron Hall

A Florida man was arrested and charged with stalking MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall this week after allegedly lurking at her apartment building on two separate occasions, The New York Post reports.

Kevin Lee Miller reportedly approached the “NewsNation” anchor outside her Manhattan apartment on Monday night. After a brief interaction, Miller allegedly followed her down the street. Building employees later said they saw Miller lurking outside the apartment building for several hours prior to the incident.

Police reported Miller, who was convicted in 2009 of soliciting a prostitute, returned to Hall’s home the next day and stayed for several hours. The building superintendent notified Hall, who called 911. Miller, who claims he is visiting New York City with his girlfriend, was held in lieu of a $1,000 bond.

This is not the first time Hall has had a stalker — a Chicago man was sentenced to three years in prison after stalking the anchor, who was then working at WFLD in Chicago, in 2004.

MSNBC declined to comment on the incident.
