Taylor Swift -- Charges Dropped Against Nashville Intruder

Exclusive Details

A man arrested for trespassing on Taylor Swift's Nashville property earlier this month will skate -- TMZ has learned all criminal trespassing charges against the man were dropped.

As we reported, 24-year-old Jacob Kulke was busted on December 14th after allegedly hopping a fence near Taylor's property. Cops say he told them he was Taylor's BF, and had taken a bus from Wisconsin to be with the singer on her birthday.

But today, prosecutors decided not to pursue criminal charges against Kulke.

According to Kulke's attorney, one of the reasons he won't be prosecuted is because Swift's home did not have "No Trespassing" signs posted at the perimeter, leading Kulke to believe it would be okay to enter the property.

Another, more logical, reason ... Swift's family reportedly did not want to move forward with the case.
