Taylor Swift Stalker Arrested
We all know Taylor Swift has a lot of fans but one fan took things a little too far. Obsessed fan Mohammed Jaffar has basically been stalking the pop star for the past three months.
The 29-year-old first showed up to Taylor's Manhattan apartment back in December asking to get a face-to-face with the star.

He was finally arrested on Monday and charged with stalking and burglary and is being held on $20,000 bond. In addition, Taylor took out an order of protection barring Jaffar from contacting her.
