California woman arrested on Chesney property

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) -- A California woman has been charged with trespassing on the property of country star Kenny Chesney.

WKRN-TV quoted Williamson County authorities as saying Melissa Mansfield of Murrieta, Calif., was arrested around 2 a.m. Wednesday in a bathroom near a swimming pool at his hilltop home south of Nashville.

Investigators said she apparently got around a fence surrounding the property.

A publicist for Chesney said he was not at home at the time.

Mansfield also was charged with public intoxication.

    It will be interesting to see if he drops the charges for her crime as his were in New York for his crime.
