Man intent on seeing Swift pleads not guilty to trespassing


WAKEFIELD — A Massachusetts man who was arrested last week outside Taylor Swift’s Watch Hill mansion told a security guard that “she had called him and asked that he come down to visit and to tell the guards it’s OK,” according to the Westerly police.

The police said it was the third time that the man, Daniel P. Cole, 38, of Brewster, had failed to heed warnings to stay away from the singer’s estate.

Cole pleaded not guilty Friday to misdemeanor charges of willful trespass and disorderly conduct before Judge Madeline Quirk in 4th Division District Court. He was released on a promise to return for a pretrial hearing on April 4. The judge issued a no-contact order barring him from having any contact with Swift, or at least with her property.

Cole stood next to Sgt. Robert Warner as the officer read from a police narrative describing the most recent incident, which occurred on March 20 at the 16 Bluff Ave. property.

In the most recent visit, the police said that Cole began cursing and refused to leave his truck, as requested. When out of his vehicle, the police report indicates that he briefly struggled with Patrol Officer Terrance Malaghan before being placed in a cruiser. He was taken to the police station, where he was charged, held and brought to court the next morning.

The police’s previous contact with Cole occurred on Dec. 9 and 21. The officials said that on Dec. 21, Cole, driving a pickup truck, blocked the entry road in front of Swift’s property.

On that occasion, he became upset when he was asked to move his vehicle and was told he was not going to be allowed to visit the 24-year-old Swift, the police said. Cole was “escorted” to Interstate 95 by authorities to ensure that he left the area after Swift’s security guards called the police to say he was again asking to visit with Swift, insisting he had an invitation.
