A man was arrested outside of Taylor Swift's New York apartment building after a series of driving mishaps followed by an attempt to enter the building.

According to E! News, witnesses called emergency services after they spotted the driver of the vehicle going the wrong way on Taylor's street in the early morning. The man is said to have hit a portable restroom and a sidewalk.

After exiting his vehicle, he then attempted to gain access to the building by removing the intercom system. His attempt was unsuccessful, and the man was eventually taken into police custody.

"Police noticed there was a bottle in his car that appeared to be alcohol," a police source told the publication. "They also smelled alcohol on him when he got out of the car after slamming into the porto potty so police did a breathalyzer."

In an updated report, TMZ reports that the man told police he wasn't going to leave the area until he met Taylor.
