NJ man arrested for doing donuts on Trump's Bedminster golf course

On Tuesday, the 26-year-old from Milford, New Jersey was arrested and charged with criminal mischief for allegedly causing $20K worth of damage at President Donald Trump's National Golf Club Bedminster, which is located in the Garden State. Police said he drove onto Trump's course twice in the last week, driving in circles on two different greens and causing at least US$17,000 (NZ$26,000) in damage.

Using part of the license plate number seen by a witness, investigators tracked down the 2006 Ford Focus to McEwan, prosecutors said Tuesday.

A Trump Organization spokesman said that McEwan should be "prosecuted to the full extent of the law".

He was accused of scaling a wall to gain access into Taylor Swift's $6.65million mansion in Westerly, Rhode Island, on August 30.

McEwan allegedly got into the house by breaking a glass door before he made himself at home and wandered through the plush pad, which Swift bought in April 2013 after breaking up with Conor Kennedy.

McEwan allegedly struck again on September 8, around 3:30 p.m. Bedminster cops arrived at the course and saw a blue Ford with a Rutgers sticker, driven by a younger man described as white.

When officers and the security guard then investigated the disturbance they found McEwan standing in the foyer, having taken his orange shoes off out of politeness when being in someone else's home, police said. When officers asked him why he wasn't wearing any, he told them, 'I was always taught that when you go into someone's home, you have to take your shoes off, ' " Westerly Police Chief Shawn Lacey told the Sun. "He said he did it because it was polite".

Four days later, McEwan was back in New Jersey but his manners were nowhere to be found when he crashed Trump's favorite home away from the White House, officials say.

The first incident of vandalism at Trump's New Jersey course occurred later that day, at about 5:30 p.m.
