Daniel Cole ignored previous warnings, police say

WESTERLY, R.I. — A 38-year-old Massachusetts man has been ordered to stay away from Taylor Swift’s vacation home on the Rhode Island shore.

The Westerly Sun reports that Daniel Cole of Brewster, Mass., was summoned before a state judge Friday, after police say he ignored previous warnings to not trespass at Swift’s mansion in the Watch Hill section of Westerly.

Cole pleaded not guilty to trespassing and disorderly conduct charges. A Wakefield District Court judge issued a no contact order and released Cole on personal recognizance.

Westerly police say Cole blocked the driveway to Swift’s home with his pickup truck Dec. 9 and was escorted off the property. Police say he returned Dec. 21 and struggled with police while refusing to leave.

A message seeking comment was left for Cole on Monday.


Police say man refused to get off roof of burning Portsmouth building
Dean Ellis

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A Rochester man is facing charges after police said he posed as a firefighter and refused to get off the roof a burning building in Portsmouth.

Dean Ellis, 29, was charged with disorderly conduct. Police said that in June, Ellis created a distraction at a fire at the F.A. Gray building on Daniel Street. At the time, the fire chief called it the most serious fire in Portsmouth in recent history.

Investigators said in court documents that Ellis posed as a fire official and even called for a second alarm while standing on the roof of the building without any protective gear.

Firefighters put up a ladder to get him down, but Ellis refused to move, police said.

Later, Ellis was spotted “hot and out of breath” on Daniel Street by a fire official, who noticed a gun tucked in his waistband, police said. That gun was loaded, and police said Ellis didn’t have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

The disorderly conduct charge and a gun charge are misdemeanors. Ellis’ trial is scheduled for June 17.


Todd W. Fike, 46, of Framingham arrested

Suspect in Southborough tire slashings arrested

Todd W. Fike

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. — Police have arrested the man they say slashed tires on seven vehicles in the parking lot of a Route 9 pub on Sunday after being refused a drink at the bar.

Todd W. Fike, 46, of Framingham was arrested Tuesday evening, Lt. Sean James said. Fike lives at the Jefferson Hills Apartments, an apartment complex on Route 9.

“We appreciate all the assistance from the public in identifying this suspect,” James said. He noted that, in addition to receiving about 20 tips from the general public, the department also received tips from police officers who had seen the man before.

“He was known to area detectives,” James said.

The man was described by witnesses and in police radio broadcasts as standing 6-feet 8-inches tall, weighing 300 to 350 pounds, wearing shorts that revealed a prosthetic leg and driving a blue “ice cream-style” truck. Police also said he spoke with a southern accent.

Witnesses say the man walked into Owen O’Leary’s Restaurant & Pub around 9:30 p.m. Sunday and was refused a drink by a bartender because he looked drunk. A short time later, a bartender saw him out in the parking lot going from car to car slicing and popping tires.

Police say the man slashed tires on seven cars before being spotted, at which time he hopped into a truck and drove away. O’Leary’s Manager Michael O’Brien told The Daily News Monday that the man nearly hit a car as he was pulling out onto Route 9.

James said Fike of 1630 Worcester Road, Apt. 212, has been charged with seven felony counts of malicious or wanton destruction/damaging of property, driving to endanger and disorderly conduct.

James said Framingham police arrested Fike at his home at about 6:20 p.m. without incident. Multiple Southborough officers, including Detective Sean McCarthy, were present.

Fike was being booked Tuesday night at the Southborough station, James said, and is due to be arraigned in Westborough District Court today.
