Taylor Swift's Stalker Wants Her To Defend Him In Court

On April 14, 2015, a young man named Nicholas T. Field showed up at Taylor Swift's Rhode Island house to deliver a letter and a poem to the singer's mother, in which he confessed that he "fell in love" with the "Blank Space" star. Field's romantic sentiments didn't quite hit his mark, though.

According to security officers at Swift's pad, the 24-year-old fan "manipulated" the gate, and he was arrested on the spot. Field had his first day in court on Friday — and he's not ready to relinquish even the tiniest chance that he'll actually get to see Swift during the proceedings.

Field pleaded not guilty to trespassing charges: According to his testimony, he was just dropping a letter off at the gate of Taylor's mansion and then paused to write a poem. Police officers told the judge that security footage of Field's alleged actions was not available, but that on-site security guards could testify to what they witnessed. Field — who described Swift as his friend — insisted that the singer did not "say to press charges," and demanded to see the video footage for himself. He also asked for a subpoena that would compel Swift to testify on his behalf.

Color us crazy, but it seems highly unlikely that Swift would consider showing up in court to defend someone accused of trying to break into her house. It seems the kindest ruling a judge could hand down to Field when he returns to court on July 10 is a reality check. Sometimes, the best thing you can do for unrequited love is just shake it off.
