A man has been arrested for allegedly trespassing on Taylor Swift's Nashville property - while carrying a knife.

According to an affidavit, 24 year old Jacob Kulke was arrested at around 2am this morning - Friday 14 December - on a charge of criminal trespassing.

Kulke reportedly took a bus from Wisconsin and a taxi from the Nashville bus stop to Taylor's house, where he then climbed over both a fence and a secured gate.

When he was stopped by security, he claimed that he knew Swift through social media, and that he wanted to surprise her for her birthday as he was dating her.

Police said he had a knife on him when he was arrested.

According to the affidavit, IT personnel confirmed that Kulke had actually not been in contact with Swift through social media but NewsChannel did discover a Twitter believed to be his, through which he did wish Swift a happy birthday.

According to TMZ, Kulke has previous criminal convictions.

The website found out that he was convicted of battery, disorderly conduct and drug possession in Wisconsin back in 2010, and placed on 13 months probation.

He had previously been arrested for second degree burglary in Colorado, and there is a warrant out for his arrest in Colorado for a probation violation.
