Taylor Swift’s armed stalker arrested.

Taylor Swift is once again the victim of another stalker. This time her stalker was armed with an aluminum bat, crowbar and lock picks.

David Paige, 32, was arrested on Friday outside of Taylor’s Rhode Island beachfront mansion. According to the police, residents had reported a suspicious man loitering outside her home. The cops found him with 30 lock picks, gloves, a crowbar, a flashlight, screwdrivers and a rake.

Westerly Police Chief Shawn Lacey told The Westerly Sun,”He kept telling us he knew her personally and was just coming to visit. He said he was trying to launch his singing career and she had agreed to help.”

Paige reportedly told the police he had arrived in town from New York after visiting Nashville and Memphis, where he was hoping to “catch up” with the singer.

David Paige mugshotLacey added: “He has a history — security guards at the home told us that he was already on a watch list because there were concerns he could pose a threat. It is our understanding that he may have visited other properties belonging to Taylor Swift in the past.”

Taylor was not on the property at the time. A judge ordered Paige to undergo a mental health evaluation and to stay away from Taylor’s properties. He was arraigned Monday on charges of possession of burglary tools and possession of a prohibited weapon other than a firearm, and was held on $10,000 bail early Wednesday.

This is not the first time Taylor has had trouble with a stalker. Last year, a man from Colorado was arrested with a knife and a rope outside her Beverly Hills mansion. ~Marriska Fernandes

    Terry, so because you can’t stand her, it’s ok if she is assaulted or worse?. What a lousy attitude you have. Sheesh

    So sad. Stalkers are so dangerous. They need to be taken more seriously. I dont think $10,000 bail was nearly enough. He needs to be locked up where he cant hurt her. How many people have to be killed by a stalker before the judicial system passes laws that treats this crime more harshly

    For my wife who passed away and all persons who think this is some kind of minor thing think
    again this is a cruel world and if it were your loved one I am sure you would act differently. Further
    like someone or not she brings smiles to others
    and that is to be respected as a good thing in a
    messed up world My wife, her sister and nice
    saw here twice and came home beaming she is a good thing try and not be so cold in a cold world you dumb Ass

    Why are these people coming armed to kill her? What do they know that justifies this?!!

    For David Sayer, so sorry for your loss, and what a great way to describe her and what she brings to the table.

    Terry, if you don’t care, why read the story and take the time to comment? Just one more example of hateful speech and an uncaring attitude that seems to become all the rage since our rude and inconsiderate President has come into office. Whether you like someone famous or not based upon their reputation or body of work, it doesn’t mean they deserve something bad happening to them. Accepting such dangerous, unacceptable and frightening behavior by one human being towards another should be of concern to all and a lack of caring or concern because you’re not a “fan” is, in my opinion, just as unacceptable and troubling.
