Man accused of vandalizing Trump's course allegedly broke into Taylor Swift's home

In what will likely be the oddest bit of golf news you'll read all week, a New Jersey man was arrested Tuesday for causing damage twice in the span of a week at Donald Trump's Bedminster club, just days after breaking into Taylor Swift's mansion in Rhode Island.

Richard McEwan was arrested late Monday (local time) at his home in Milford, New Jersey, the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office said.

Richard Joseph McEwan, 26, of Milford, New Jersey, has been charged by police for the damage they claim he caused to the green on two of the holes, which totaled almost $20,000.

He then allegedly came back for a second round on Sunday at around 3.30pm when a witnessed claimed to see a blue Ford with a Rutgers sticker, driven by a white male on hole 13.

Witnesses got a partial license plate and noticed a Rutgers sticker on the blue auto during the second joyride, according to the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office, which connected the vehicle to McEwan.

A spokesperson for the Trump Organization said in a statement on Tuesday that McEwan "will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law".

An investigation determined the vehicle was a 2006 Ford Focus belonging to 26-year-old Richard Joseph McEwan, the suspect who also allegedly broke into Swift's Rhode Island home, Robertson said.

He was released pending a future court date, prosecutors said.

Two weeks ago, McEwan was arrested in Rhode Island for allegedly breaking into pop superstar Taylor Swift's beach home.

When officers and the security guard then investigated the disturbance they found McEwan standing in the foyer, having taken his orange shoes off out of politeness when being in someone else's home, police said. "He said he did it because it was polite". New Jersey prosecutors confirmed it was the same man.
