Milo Pressman is a minor antagonist in the Stephen King novella The Body and its 1986 film adaptation Stand By Me.
He was played by the late William Bronder.
He is an angry old junkyard owner who is rumored to own a ferocious dog named Chopper that he has trained to attack specific body parts. Chopper does exist, but he is just a harmless golden retriever.
When the four main characters taunt Chopper after trespassing on Milo's property, he threatens to beat the boys up as he heard them tease his dog Chopper, after they escape, then to call the boys' parents, except for Teddy's father, who Milo calls "a loony up in the nuthouse in Togus", knowing he nearly burnt off Teddy's ear using a stove, which enrages Teddy, who would then threaten to kill Milo. After this scene, Milo does not make any more appearances in the story.
- After he recognizes Gordie, Chris, and. Vern, he threatened to call their fathers (except Teddy’s father). However, it is unknown if he actually did that or said that just to scare them.
