On Tuesday, April 7th, a man was arrested outside the Rhode Island home of Taylor Swift. The man, identified as David Page, had allegedly been trespassing on the property and was arrested by Westerly Police.
According to police, Page had been on the property for several hours when he was arrested. He was reportedly carrying a backpack filled with items such as a laptop, camera equipment, and a metal baton. He also had a letter addressed to Swift in his backpack. The contents of the letter have not been disclosed.
Page was charged with two counts of felony stalking, one count of breach of peace, and one count of possession of a weapon other than a firearm. He was taken into custody and is being held on $10,000 bail.
This is not the first time Swift has had to deal with a trespasser. In 2018, a man named Roger Alvarado was arrested for breaking into her New York City townhouse. He was charged with burglary, criminal mischief, and stalking.
The singer has also had to deal with other stalkers in the past. In 2016, a man named Frank Andrew Hoover was sentenced to 10 years in prison for sending threatening emails to Swift.
It is unclear why Page was on the property or why he had a letter addressed to Swift. However, the singer has made it clear that she takes the safety of herself and her loved ones seriously.
It is important for celebrities to take extra precautions when it comes to their safety. Swift has been a vocal advocate for victims of stalking and has encouraged her fans to report any suspicious activity they may witness.
In this case, Swift was able to protect herself and her property from an alleged trespasser. While the situation could have ended much worse, it is a reminder that celebrities must remain vigilant in order to stay safe.
