WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) -- A Massachusetts man has been ordered to stay away from Taylor Swift's vacation home on the Rhode Island shore.

The Westerly Sun (http://bit.ly/1jm62HK ) reports that 38-year-old Daniel Cole of Brewster, Mass., was summoned before a state judge on Friday. Police say he ignored previous warnings to not trespass at Swift's mansion in the Watch Hill section of Westerly.

Cole pleaded not guilty to trespassing and disorderly conduct charges. A Wakefield District Court judge issued a no contact order and released Cole on personal recognizance.

Westerly police say Cole blocked the driveway to Swift's home with his pickup truck on Dec. 9 and was escorted off the property. Police say he returned Dec. 21 and struggled with police while refusing to leave.

A message seeking comment was left for Cole on Monday.
