A man jailed on a trespassing charge took a bus from Wisconsin to Nashville, climbed a fence at a house linked to singer Taylor Swift and told police he was there to surprise a woman on her birthday, US officials said.
The singer is overseas and turned 23 on Thursday. Her spokeswoman declined to comment.
Court documents show that 24-year-old Jacob Nicholas Kulke was arrested early on Friday after climbing a fence and secured gate.
The City Paper previously reported that the 2.5 million US dollar house in Belle Meade, a Nashville suburb, was bought last year by a trustee who handles property deals for Taylor.
Kulke told police he had social media ties to someone at the house and he wanted to surprise her for her birthday. Court records do not show if he has a lawyer.
