Luckily for you, we have all the details right here, right now; and now, we present the epic tale of Richard McEwan: it truly is a production you need to know about. Who is Richard McEwan?


1. McEwan’s targeted Trump’s golf course twice.

Sources say McEwan was involved in two separate incidents that warranted police attention. The first time around on September 3, an employee reported seeing a vehicle doing “donuts” on the 11th hole of the golf course; the Ford was later confirmed to be registered to McEwan. A week later, McEwan returned with a vengeance, doing “donuts” at the 13th hole, which has caused damage estimated between $7K-$9K; a witness was able to provide police with a partial license plate of the vehicle.


2. In total, McEwan did at least $17,000 in damage to the course.

According to authorities, McEwan’s joy rides have resulted in approximately $17,000 in damages. Talk about yikes!

3. Last month, he was busted inside Swift‘s beachfront home in Rhode Island.

Officers responded to a phone tip of a man jumping outside of Swift’s lavish beach house. Upon police arrival, McEwan tried escaping, but was quickly caught and charged with breaking and entering and willful trespassing. Once he was in custody, he then informed cops that he had taken his shoes off to “be polite.” An investigation determined he had arrived to Rhode Island earlier in the day to find Taylor.

4. Fun fact: he was the first burglar to break inside her home.

Yup, you ready that correctly! According to Heavy, The Westerly police had dealt with numerous complaints similar in nature, but have never heard of anyone actually making it into the home.
