Taylor Swift's Dad Fights Off Trespasser in Apartment

Taylor Swift's Dad Fights Off Trespasser in Apartment

Taylor Swift‘s dad got into an altercation with a man who he found inside his penthouse apartment.

The 67-year-old came home to his $4 million Florida penthouse at around 10pm on January 17 and found 30-year-old Terrence Hoover in the apartment.

Apparently, Hoover had climbed 13 floors in an emergency escape stairwell to enter the apartment, which is only accessible through the stairwell or through an elevator with keycard access, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

They had a bit of a scuffle and Hoover left…only to then call the police and report the scuffle. Police tracked down Hoover last week and arrested him on burglary charges. Scott picked Hoover out of a lineup of photos.

Hoover‘s past charges include domestic violence by strangulation, aggravated battery, burglary, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and kidnapping and false imprisonment.

“He was lost and should be charged with only trespassing,” his mom, Donna DeNapoli, said, adding he was, “looking for churches by the water.”

We’re glad Scott is okay after the incident.

When last we heard from Scott Swift, he was doing a very good deed!
