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 … our sources 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.
