Taylor Swift Swim Stalker: Chicago Man Arrested After Swimming To Star's Swanky Beach Front Pad

Sometime's a girl just has to get away...from her stalkers.

Celebrity stalker magnet Taylor Swift was trying to do just that when a Chicago man reportedly swam the singer's Rhode Island beach home in an attempt to meet her.

Lucas Vorsteveld, 22, was arrested around 2 a.m. Thursday after making a round-trip swim from roughly a mile away from Swift's private beach, to her property and back, TMZ reports.

WGN reports Vorsteveld was quickly nabbed by Swift's security team after he was seen emerging from the water and walking up to the star's sprawling beach front home. The Chicago man reportedly told security he was "just out for a walk" and was also planning to meet the singer.

Vorsteveld was taken into custody and booked on trespassing charges. The Westerly Police Department told TMZ, "There is a zero tolerance policy for trespassers."

The singer, who has been stalked by other men in the past, is still faring better than some of her celebrity counterparts: Earlier this year, "How I Met Your Mother" star Alyson Hannigan had to file a restraining order against a man threatening to kill her and her family.
