*A Florida man was arrested a second time for allegedly stalking MSNBC cable-news anchor Tamron Hall in Manhattan, reports the New York Post.
Kevin Lee Miller, 55, of Delray Beach, first allegedly approached the 40-year-old host of MSNBC’s “NewsNation with Tamron Hall” outside her Murray Hill building Monday at 7 p.m.
“I see you are being incognito. Do you live around here? Do you like New York better than Chicago?” asked Miller, who lived in the Windy City during seven of the 10 years Hall worked there for Fox affiliate WFLD.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Miller — who has a 2009 bust in Florida for soliciting a hooker — then allegedly followed Hall along East 34th Street to Second Avenue.
Building employees later told the Texas-born anchor — whose sister, Renate, was murdered in 2004 — that Miller had been lurking outside her apartment for three hours until super Robert Andrzejewski ran him off.
Miller showed up again at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, cops said, and hung out for hours until Andrzejewski spotted him and notified Hall, who called 911. Cops arrested Miller at 6:44 p.m. and charged him with stalking.
“I noticed the guy hanging around on Monday,” said Andrzejewski, 40. “Then I saw him again Wednesday. I said, ‘What? This guy’s back?’
“She was a little freaked out. I just did my job, protecting the residents of my building.”
At his arraignment yesterday in Manhattan Criminal Court, Judge Diana Boyar ordered Miller held in lieu of $1,000 bail and told him to have no contact with Hall, who could not be reached.
Asked if he understood, Miller, in a T-shirt and shorts, meekly whispered, “Yes,” his leg twitching as he spoke, according to the Post.
A prosecutor said Miller told cops he was in New York with his girlfriend looking for a job and denied stalking Hall.
It was a bad case of deja vu for the eye-catching TV talker, who was also stalked in 2003 and 2004, while working at WFLD. Tonny Horne, then 32, was busted twice for haunting Hall online, over the phone and in person. He sent her sexually explicit messages and bizarre marriage proposals — and finally showed up outside WFLD’s studio. He was sent to prison for three years.
Hall once wrote about her sister’s harrowing death, which inspired her to work to promote awareness of domestic violence.
“Renate . . . was found face down in her backyard pool. Her hair had been pulled from the back of her head. Her nails were broken on every finger,” she wrote, adding that no one was ever arrested, although her abusive boyfriend was a prime suspect.
