Man Arrested After Breaking Into Taylor Swift's New York City Apartment

Cops caught an alleged stalker napping in Taylor Swift's Tribeca apartment Friday morning.

Unfortunately, Taylor Swift seems to attract this sort of unwanted attention - this incident is the fourth that has affected her in the past month. Roger Alvarado allegedly climbed up a ladder, smashed a window with his hand and got into the NYC brownstone early Friday.

Alvarado was then charged with stalking, burglary, criminal mischief and criminal trespass.

US said to investigate AT&T, Verizon over wireless collusion claim
News of the investigation comes as the Justice Department's trial to block AT&T's $85 billion Time Warner merger draws to a close. The G.S.M.A., a mobile industry standards-setting group, is also part of the investigation, according to the NY Times.

By the time police arrived, they had found that he had taken a shower before hopping into bed. However, The New York Times reported that this is actually the second time that Alvarado was arrested for breaking into the premises.

On Feb. 13, Alvarado was arrested for allegedly using a shovel to smash the building's front glass door. TMZ also points out that though she bought the property a few months ago, she has yet to live there since buying.

He claimed he had driven from Colorado to meet Taylor, and police allegedly found latex gloves, an empty gun holster, black rope and a knife in his vehicle.

Another Taylor Swift fan has taken his obsession way too far. It's a wonder Swift feels safe anywhere now that she knows that there are so many disturbed people out there willing to risk arrest to get inside her homes.
