London: An obsessed fan of country star Taylor Swift was arrested for trespassing near her new island home.

A 22-year-old man was held by police for trespassing after swimming a mile through icy Atlantic water near the singer`s mansion, reported Daily Mirror.

He was held and is believed to have told officers he had tried to see the 23-year-old singer earlier but was scared when he was spotted by her security team.

Swift bought the eight-bedroom Rhode Island mansion last month for around 13.8 million pounds.

It is not known if Swift was in her mansion or not.

A spokesperson for Westerly Police Department said that they met the star`s security to discuss the incident and added, "There is a zero tolerance for trespassers."

It is not the first time that Swift has had trouble with stalkers.

In December 2012, a 24-year-old man was reportedly arrested at her Nashville home after climbing over a fence.
