Taylor Swift

Fan ARRESTED for Swimming to Singer's Beach Pad

EXCLUSIVE

An obsessed Taylor Swift fan was arrested near the singer's Rhode Island beach home early this morning after allegedly SWIMMING up to her pad ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement tells us ... a 22-year-old male from the Chicago area was taken into custody for trespassing after he admitted to swimming up to the beach in front of Swift's home around 2 AM.

Here's the back story -- around 2:20 AM, cops spotted the man getting out of the ocean, around 1 mile from Swift's home.

Cops approached the guy and asked him what he was doing in the water -- and the man allegedly told police he had just completed a swim, in which he intended to meet Taylor.

Sources say ... the man told cops he swam all the way to Swift's beach, but saw her security team ... and decided to swim back to where he came from (roughly 2 miles round trip in cold water).

The man was hauled to a nearby police station where he was booked for trespassing. He's still in custody.

We spoke to the Westerly Police Dept. which tells us, "There is a zero tolerance policy for trespassers." The cops say they have already met with Taylor's security to discuss the matter.

Awww, tell her to go buy an island! She can afford one. Tell her to barricade herself in, and stay there for the next 30 years. UGH! That poor stupid guy. The word on Taylor is that she is NEVER without her bodyguard/driver. Ever. So if she always has a bodyguard it stands to reason she also has a "security force" at her house.

Another "who cares" story. When do police have the time or funds to patrol a beach at 2am? What a waste of taxpayer dollars. I live on a coast. Never heard of such nonsense.

You can't own the beach. That's public domain up to the average high tide. Swift must know someone in the american politburueau.

Clearly she needs an attack yacht for her security. Or she could pay some taxes for the police. Anyone fancy an en masse swim of about a mile? Let's make her secret hideaway on OUR ocean reality for her. What a shame all these other people get to be in her ocean. Reality check time I think!

I would rather watch this guy swim that far at 2 A.M than hear any of Taylor's crybaby music.

How can swimming to any beach be trespassing when the Supreme Court has already ruled that all coastline is public domain? No private party is allowed to own the beach. Seems like she's paid off the local PD.

Her music and overexposure are nauseating enough. Now she owns the coast. Bull****. Taylor, there's plenty of property overseas, why not go there??
