Terrifying news of the day: While Taylor Swift's been celebrating her 23rd birthday with boyfriend Harry Styles in England (and by releasing her latest video, "I Knew You Were Trouble"), 24-year-old Jacob Kulke was trying to break into her Nashville mansion. 

According to Nashville's News Channel 5, Kulke took a bus from Wisconsin to Music City and then a taxi from the bus stop to Taylor's home in the swank Belle Meade neighborhood. Kulke, who was carrying a knife, climbed a fence and a security gate in an attempt to enter Taylor's house, but he was caught and arrested around 2 A.M. Friday morning. He was held in the Davidson County jail on $10,000 bond. 

Kulke has previously been arrested for second degree burglary in Colorado early this year, and there is a warrant out for his arrest in Colorado for a probation violation. He also tweeted happy birthday wishes to Taylor before he attempted his break in, which makes the whole situation 100 times creepier. 

Taylor recently opened up to British Cosmopolitan about run-ins with stalkers explaining, "Sometimes you get a dude who kind of wants to steal you. That's why I'm so grateful I have people looking after me." Maybe that's why she might be looking at a home in England at the moment. (We're sure it has nothing to do with Harry, BTW.)
