Taylor Swift Fan Who Allegedly Rushed Stage Returns to Court

A Taylor Swift fan who allegedly jumped a fence and rushed on stage during the pop star's concert at Petco Park in August will return to court Monday.

Christian Ewing, 26, appeared in a San Diego court in September, pleading not guilty to two felony charges, a misdemeanor and a municipal code violation.

He will now face a mental competency hearing.

“When asked why he went on stage, he said, ‘I love that girl,’ referring to Ms. Swift,” Deputy District Attorney Jessica Coto said in court in September.

Prosecutors said when a security guard told him he couldn't be in the stage area, Ewing escaped and ran onto the stage. Guards eventually dragged him away.
