““He was walking near her house and was arrested for trespassing,” Westerly police Captain Shawn Lacey told the Boston Globe.
The man, Lucas Vorsteveld, was walking on a private road but told police he was “just out for a walk.”
Lacey wouldn’t comment on the reports that Vorsteveld swam to shore before walking around.
“I don’t know if he was soaking wet or not,” he said.
TMZ, citing a police source, says the man was arrested around 2 a.m., after admitting to swimming up to the beach in front of Swift’s home.
He was back in the water; he told police that he was planning to swim back after he saw Swift’s security team.
“There is a zero tolerance policy for trespassers,” said a police officer with the Westerly Police Department.
