Swift trespasser disregards warnings


WAKEFIELD — A 38-year-old Massachusetts man found himself summoned before a judge Friday after Westerly police said he ignored previous trespass warnings to stay away from the Watch Hill mansion property belonging to popular entertainer Taylor Swift.

Daniel P. Cole, of Brewster, Mass., was charged Thursday with misdemeanor counts of willful trespass and disorderly conduct.

Police said they first encountered Cole on Dec. 9, when he was questioned for blocking the driveway to the Swift home at 16 Bluff Ave., while sitting in his pickup truck.

He was escorted off the property. Police said he was again on the property on Dec. 21.

Police reported he refused to leave his truck, and briefly struggled with an officer.

Cole reportedly had told a guard in the driveway that he was there to visit Swift, and to “tell the guard it was OK for him to come up to the house.” The guard had apparently recognized Cole from a previous encounters.

Police said Cole continued to scream obscenities as he was arrested and taken to the police station, where he was held for arraignment.
