How far can your fanboying go? A man from Indiana was arrested after stalking and attempting to enter Taylor Swift's home.

Mitchell Taebel, 36, faced multiple criminal charges of stalking, intimidation, invasion of privacy, and harassment against the singer.

According to LaPorte County Jail records, Taebel allegedly sent threatening messages from March to May of this year to Swift and her management during the Eras Tour.

In the affidavit, Taebel allegedly posted threatening videos about Swift on Instagram throughout April saying that the singer “deserves to be shot.”

On March 25, Taebel allegedly sent pictures of weapons via social media to the superstar's management and team, threatening to "destroy them."

Swift's father attested that he also received a message five days later from the suspect, who declared he was his daughter's "soulmate," and then showed up at the superstar's Nashville home on May 31.

The affidavit also confirmed that he was escorted away from the residence by security and went to Nissan Stadium, where Swift was performing.

Despite being on the blacklist, Taebel was able to purchase a ticket from a third party and entered the stadium before having escorted off the site by security and venue personnel

As per reports, Taebel even urged fellow Swifties on Tiktok to prepare for her Eras Tour by "being a step ahead of Taylor wherever she goes... watch her every move."

He is currently under custody with a $15,000 (P841k) bond charge for the stalking offense. 

The Southern Poverty Law Center took Taebel's profile under care before his next court appearance on July 27. 

The American singer-songwriter has never been new in the spotlight of stalking incidents. In 2019, Roger Alvarado allegedly broke into her residences while Eric Swarbrick pleaded guilty to stalking and sending “love” letters in the following year. 

Swift is currently on the road for her Eras Tour, which is running from March to August 2023 in the United States. She is notable for her songs including Blank Space, Lover, You Belong With Me, and many more.
