The case of a man arrested near Taylor Swift’s beachfront mansion in Rhode Island for carrying burglary tools has been dismissed by prosecutors.
A spokesman for the Rhode Island attorney general’s office tells WJAR-TV that they’ve “declined to pursue filing charges” against 32-year-old David Page Liddle.
The Des Moines, Iowa, man was charged with possession of burglary tools and possession of a weapon other than a firearm after his arrest in Westerly on July 19.
Liddle told police he was looking to “catch up” with the singer because he knew her personally.
Swift’s security personnel said Liddle is on their watch list and had previously been accused of stalking her.
Fox chief says Emmy Awards won’t have a host this year
The Oscars did it, and now the Emmys will too. There will be no host at the ceremony honoring TV’s best next month.
Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier said Wednesday that going hostless allows more time to salute departing shows, including “Game of Thrones.”
The HBO fantasy saga, which ended its run this past season, is the top nominee with a record-setting 32 nominations.
Collier said producers would have considered possible hosts and checked on their availability for the Sept. 22 ceremony. The Fox executive didn’t directly address whether anyone had declined.
The Emmy show rotates among the top broadcast networks.
The Oscars ran into trouble when last year’s planned host, Kevin Hart, stepped down following a backlash over his past homophobic tweets. The search for a replacement proved fruitless.
Danny Trejo helps save baby trapped in car in Los Angeles
Actor Danny Trejo played a real-life hero when he helped rescue a baby trapped in an overturned car after a collision at a Los Angeles intersection.
Authorities say two cars crashed Wednesday in the Sylmar neighborhood.
Video aired by KABC-TV shows Trejo at the crash scene. Trejo says he crawled into the wrecked vehicle from one side but couldn’t unbuckle the child’s car seat from that angle. He says another bystander, a young woman, was able to undo the buckle.
Together they pulled the baby safely from the wreckage.
The Los Angeles Fire Department says three people were taken to a hospital, and there were no life-threatening injuries.
The 75-year-old Trejo, an L.A. native, is best known for playing the character Machete from the “Spy Kids” series.
