Man charged with Swift trespass arrested again


PROVIDENCE — A 23-year-old visitor to the United States charged Dec. 12 with trespassing on Taylor Swift’s Watch Hill property was arrested days later in Providence, charged with assault.

Vladimir Levant told Washington County Judge Madeline Quirk he was on vacation but appeared vague about his country of origin, saying he spoke Russian and Hebrew, with English being his third language. He was charged with misdemeanor willful trespass.

Levant pleaded not guilty in 4th Division District Court in Wakefield to climbing over the seawall at Swift’s mansion on Bluff Avenue. Security personnel said Levant was “clearly on the property” and ignored several verbal commands to leave the property. Levant said he was in the area for a birthday party. Swift’s 24th birthday was the day he appeared in court. However, she was not at her home, Westerly Police Chief Edward St.Clair said.

Levant, who called the sheriffs “swine” during his arraignment, was initially to be held at the Adult Correctional Institutions overnight and scheduled to undergo a mental health evaluation. He was eventually released on personal recognizance, using vulgarities directed at the judge.

Levant had said he planned to leave the country to go home and was going to visit the Israeli consulate in New York in an effort to get him a flight out of the country.

That plan was diverted when he was arrested by Providence Police. He was arraigned in 6th Division District Court in Providence where he pleaded not guilty. He is being held at the ACI and has again been scheduled a mental health screening prior to his next appearance in court on Jan. 13.
