WESTERLY, Rhode Island (AP) — A man has been ordered to stay away from Taylor Swift's vacation home on the Rhode Island shore.

The Westerly Sun reports that 38-year-old Daniel Cole of Brewster, Massachusetts, was summoned before a state judge on Friday. Police say he ignored previous warnings to not trespass at Swift's mansion.

Cole pleaded not guilty to trespassing and disorderly conduct charges. A judge issued a no contact order and released Cole on personal recognizance.

Westerly police say Cole blocked the driveway to Swift's home with his pickup truck on Dec. 9 and was escorted off the property. Police say he returned Dec. 21 and struggled with police while refusing to leave.

A message seeking comment was left for Cole on Monday.
