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.

This chick jumps on and off of more guys than a flea in a prison camp.
Given that, . . . Why's she so worried about keeping an obviously in shape swimmer away???

get your facts straight TMZ.. He was not arrested after the cops found him in the ocean. He was walking on a private road near the home when he was arrested and there was no indication he had actually been in the water previous to the arrest.

I live in Westerly, RI, where the beach house is. You people will literally believe anything you hear. He did NOT swim up to her house, he walked down a private road towards her house. Two miles in the ocean this time of year without a wet suit? Are you out of your minds?! It's called common sense. Use it.

Taylor's people should post TMZ Harvey (whatshisname) address and photo of his residence. Turnabout is fairplay.

It would really be a miracle if you morons READ THE NEWS once in a while. Read http://www.thewesterlysun.com/news/taylor-fan-swiftly-apprehended-in-watch-hill/article_5a95f436-be33-11e2-aacd-001a4bcf887a.html AND http://www.theday.com/article/20130515/NWS04/130519797/1070/SPORT16

There was NO evidence that he was even on her property, let alone "swam" to her private beach. If you know the Watch Hill area of Westerly, RI, then you would know that if there is a house on the beach, then it's a private beach. It comes with the property.
