A 26-year-old Texas, man has been arrested on federal charges for allegedly sending letters to Taylor Swift containing threats of sexual and physical violence, and showing up at her record label in Nashville.

Federal prosecutors in Nashville said in a press release Thursday that Eric Swarbrick, of Austin, has been charged with interstate stalking and sending interstate communications with the intent to threaten.
He is currently in custody in Texas and will be brought to Tennessee at a later date.
According to prosecutors, Swarbrick personally delivered letters threatening to rape and kill the Reputation songstress and himself to the Big Machine Label Group office on multiple occasions and was arrested by Nashville police on August 2.
He was released from custody, but continued to send letters and emails.
'Too often, we have seen the consequences of ignoring signs of escalating violent behavior by some individuals,' said US Attorney Cochran. 'The attention given to this matter by our law enforcement partners and the resulting federal charges we have brought should serve to prevent a future tragic event.'
According to the complaint, in January 2018, Big Machine Label Group in Nashville began receiving letters from Swarbrick expressing his desire for BMLG CEO Scott Borchetta to introduce him to Swift.
In one letter, Swarbrick acknowledges that he has been wandering around the offices of BMLG in the past. Over time, the letters became increasingly violent and sexual in nature, with at least 40 letters and emails being received by the music label, according to the complaint.
