Man detained outside Taylor Swift's home

A man was detained by police outside Taylor Swift's home after "spooking" her neighbours.

According to TMZ.com, LAPD officers arrived at the Los Angeles property after getting a call from someone in the neighbourhood who saw a man wandering around at the bottom of her driveway.

After the police arrived, pictures show the man being put in handcuffs and placed into a police car. Wearing fatigues and sporting a beard, the man didn't put up a fight as he was taken into custody at around 4pm.

The website reports that after questioning the suspect, police officers decided he needed to be evaluated at a hospital. He was has yet to be charged with any crime following the arrest.

Sources claimed to Entertainment Tonight that the unnamed man was "yelling for Taylor to come out of her home," which frightened other residents in her Bel Air estate, leading them to call the police.

He was taken away for medical observation and later released without charge.

It is not known if Taylor was at home during the incident.

Meanwhile, the 'Bad Blood' hitmaker had been forced to secure restraining orders against a number of stalkers in the past.

Timothy Sweet was ordered to stay away from her and her parents, Andrea and Scott, for three years in March 2014 after he sent her dozens of emails, letters and social media posts declaring his love for her.

He also allegedly threatened to "kill any man," including US Secretary of State John Kerry, who came between him and Taylor, as he believed he and the singer were married.

And Christian Ewing was arrested and charged after being taken down by four of the 'Blank Space' singer's bodyguards when he snuck into her concert at Petco Park in San Diego, California last year and jumped up on stage alongside the star.

Although he was eventually dragged away, one member of Taylor's team is believed to have suffered a broken rib during the incident.

District Attorney Jessica Coto said in court that when asked why he went on stage, he said, "I love that girl".
