Man charged with doing 'doughnuts' at Donald Trump's golf course

Man charged with doing 'doughnuts' at Donald Trump's golf course

The vehicle was seen driving in circles on top of the 11th hole, prosecutors said.

McEwan was arrested late Monday for allegedly doing "doughnuts" at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

McEwan was not wearing shoes when he was arrested in Swift's beachfront mansion last month. The Westerly Sun newspaper in Rhode Island said that McEwan hopped a fence and broke a glass door to enter Swift's home.

Police say Richard J. McEwan drove his auto onto Trump's Bedminster golf course.

With the help of Holland Township Police Department, McEwan was found at his home and taken into custody on Tuesday.

Cops connected McEwan to the first incident by a piece of the Ford left behind.

Days later, police say McEwan was back at it in his home state.

The Somerset County prosecutor says an employee at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster observed a spinning vehicle "doing donuts" on the 11th hole on September 3.

It wasn't long before cops allege McEwan struck again, this time spinning his auto out near the 13th hole at 3:36 p.m. Sunday.

For the most recent allegations at the golf course, Trump was reported to not be at the location but did spend time there during July, according to his public schedule.

Last Sunday, police returned to the golf course when a witness reported seeing a blue Ford compact vehicle with a Rutgers sticker driving in circles on the green of the 13th hole.

An investigation determined the vehicle was a 2006 Ford Focus belonging to 26-year-old Richard Joseph McEwan, the suspect who also allegedly broke into Swift's Rhode Island home, Robertson said.

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.

He posted $5,000 bond for the charges of breaking and entering a home without the owner's consent and willful trespassing.
