Thursday, August 22, 2013
Joseph Bernatche was arrested on July 27 by the Westerly Police Department for willful trespassing, following a no-trespass notice that had been issued by Westerly Police back in May.
According to the July 27 arrest report, John Harvey, the security guard working at the front gate of Swift's residence, called the Westerly Police after he was approached by Bernatche, who handed Harvey a note to give to Swift.
Westerly Police were dispatched to Swift's residence and initiated a vehicle stop of Bernatche on Watch Hill Road, where he was arrested and brought to the station.
Bernatche was arraigned on August 9, and is due in Rhode Island court on Friday for a pretrial conference.
