On Tuesday law enforcement officials announced the arrest of a New Jersey man, who did donuts while blasting music on Donald Trump’s Bedminster golf course. Reportedly, the man did this on two separate occasions and has caused thousands of dollars of damage.
The instances began back on September 3, when workers reported 26-year-old Richard McEwan driving in tight circles, with the music blasting, on the 11th hole of the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster at around 5:30 p.m.
A few days later McEwan, who is from Milford, returned to the golf course driving a 2006 Ford Focus, This time he began doing donuts on the green of the 13th hole just after 3:30 pm on Sunday.
Witnesses were able to get a partial license plate and also noticed a blue Rutgers sticker on the blue car as it took its second joy ride.
Officials state that McEwan was arrested on Monday and has been charged with criminal mischief. Officials were able to connect McEwan to the first incident by a piece of his Ford that was left behind.
“Upon arrival, Bedminster Police officers were advised that around 5:30 p.m., an employee of the golf course reported seeing a vehicle doing “donuts” on the 11th hole of the golf course,” the release said.
“The employee stated he was standing on the fairway when he heard loud music playing, turned and observed a Ford sedan occupied by one person doing ‘donuts” on top of the 11th hole. A search of the area yielded a black piece of plastic labeled Ford that was left behind at the scene.”
“Upon the arrival of officers, a witness advised police that a blue Ford compact car with a Rutgers sticker on it was seen being driven by a younger white male. A partial license plate of the vehicle was obtained.”
Management at the resort state that McEwan did an estimated $20,000 in damage to the golf course.
Now, if McEwan’s name sounds familiar to you it is most likely because he was arrested back on August 30, for trying to break into Taylor Swift’s Rhode Island home.
Police say that In that incident, McEwan took off his shoes at Swift’s door “to be polite,” before going inside to look for her. No one was in the home at the time.
He was released on $5,000 bond after being charged with breaking and entering a home without the owner’s consent and willful trespassing.
McEwan has been released pending a future court date.
