South Kingstown - A trespassing charge has been dismissed against a man accused of showing up at Taylor Swift's vacation home.

The Westerly Sun reports that police decided to drop the charge after determining it would be difficult to prove that 55-year-old Joseph Bernatche was on Swift's property in Rhode Island when he handed her security guard a note telling the singer to call him.

The charge was dismissed on Friday.
