Man goes to the extreme to win Hannah Montana tickets

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Maybe he did it for his own Hannah.

Six days after grabbing a part of a 12-foot statue of Hannah Montana, 35-year-old Jody Powell has won four tickets to a sold-out concert in Tampa, Florida by Miley Cyrus, the star of the Disney Channel TV show.

Powell outlasted 19 other contestants, becoming the last one to let go of the statue yesterday. 

The contest was held by Tampa radio station WFLZ-FM in its parking lot

Powell, who says winning is "like a dream come true," is apt to take his fiancee and her 7-year-old daughter, who just happens to be named Hannah.

Runner-up Lara Padgett doesn't go away empty handed. She and Powell agreed earlier that the winner would get the tickets, the second-place finisher would get the two backstage passes, and they'll split the $5,000 cash prize.
