The man charged with breaking into Taylor Swift’s Rhode Island mansion is in trouble with the law yet again.

A CBS affiliate in Philadelphia reported that Richard J. McEwan took off his shoes before breaking into Swift’s home to be polite.

Another incident happened where New York City police said a 23-year-old man broke into Taylor Swift's home, barely a month after he was released from prison for the same crime.

McEwan has been charged with criminal mischief after police said he drove around President Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf course doing “doughnuts” on the grounds.

According to the Somerset County prosecutor’s office, McEwan is accused of driving his Ford compact onto the green at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Police also reported this happened on two separate dates which caused more than $17,000 in damages.

Prosecutors said an employee saw the car on September 3 after hearing loud noises.

McEwan’s car was seen driving in circles on top of the course’s 11th hole.

Last Sunday, police went back to the golf course when somebody said they saw a blue Ford compact car driving in circles on the 13th hole.

Officers were given a partial license number and were told that the person driving the vehicle was a “white male.”

Police identified McEwan’s Ford Focus and arrested him at his home in Milford, New Jersey.

According to CNN, the Trump Organization released a statement on Tuesday and said “McEwan will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

Prosecutors said he was released pending a future court date.
