A man has been arrested for drunkenly crashing a car into Taylor Swift's New York City apartment building and trying to gain entry, US police say.
Morgan Mank, 31, was arrested shortly after 3am on Thursday after driving the wrong way on Franklin Street in the Tribeca neighbourhood, where Swift owns a townhouse and several apartments in an adjacent building, a police spokesperson said.
Police said Mank crashed into one of the buildings and tried unsuccessfully to gain entry.
The spokesperson could not confirm reports that Mank told officers he would not leave until he met with Swift.
Mank was taken to a hospital for an evaluation and later arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated.
Swift, a multiple Grammy winner with a fervent fan base, has been plagued by stalkers at her Tribeca home as well as homes she owns in California and Rhode Island.
