Threatening fan arrested at Taylor Swift concert

A man who threatened to kill singer Taylor Swift was arrested on Saturday at her Pittsburgh concert at Heinz Field. Joseph Jackson, 28, from Clarksburg, Pennsylvania, was taken into custody by police after he made threats on Facebook stating “Taylor Swift must perish and die.” At the concert, he had brought with him a sign on which he wrote “I luv you” and “Taylor Swift is with Satan.” Swift’s security officials discovered his posts and informed the police ahead of the concert. Police records reveal that when Jackson was detained he professed: “Taylor Swift is Satan and that 6,000 years is six days and death comes on the sixth day, so Taylor Swift is in danger.” Jackson remains in jail and is expected to undergo a mental evaluation. ~Alfonso Espina

    If you are going to report on this, at least get your facts straight ! Clarksburg is in West Virginia. Not Pennsylvania !

    Actually tommy, Tribute is right. This guy is from Clarksburg, Pennsylvania. There’s also a Clarksburg in West Virginia, but that’s not where he’s from.
