Taylor Swift’s beauty allegedly pushed a man with a crush on her to a life of crime all in the hopes of — ready for it? — impressing her … seriously.
Bruce Rowley was arrested last week in Ansonia, CT after cops say he confessed to robbing a bank and then driving to Taylor’s house and throwing some of the money that he stole over her fence, thinking that would win her over … this according to a police report obtained by TMZ.
According to cops, Rowley allegedly entered the bank and demanded money from a bank teller. Rowley did not show a weapon or make any threats … and the teller turned over an undetermined amount of cash.
Cops say Rowley — who was spotted by state troopers in Rhode Island and led them on a chase back to Connecticut — told them he tried contacting Swift, but said she wasn’t home. Cops are trying to verify whether he actually went to her house.
According to the police report … Rowley repeatedly told cops he had a crush on Taylor and that he planned on donating some of the money he stole from the bank to Ansonia PD … believing that would impress her.
Rowley was booked for robbery in the second degree and larceny in the fourth degree. He’s being held on bail.
