Swift's fan wants gun to protect her in Africa

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

A 58-year-old man, who claims to be Taylor Swift's boyfriend, has told the police that he needs a gun to protect her in

According to the police in New Hampshire, a man was at the station for voluntary questioning on an unrelated case when he bragged he was the singer's boyfriend, reports

"He went as far as showing them texts with a 'Taylor Swift' as the recipient," said the police officials.

The police got suspicious when he started asking how many states he can drive through with a concealed carry weapons permit. He also told the police he wanted a gun to protect Taylor in

However, it is unclear why he thinks Swift will be in

The police could not detain the man as "someone simply saying they want a gun to protect someone is not a crime".

The officials are trying to contact Swift's team to warn her.
