NJ man accused of doing ‘doughnuts’ on Trump’s New Jersey golf course

A Hunterdon County man is accused of visiting President Trump's Bedminster golf course twice this month and driving his auto onto the greens and doing "donuts", causing more than $20,000 in damage.

McEwan was arrested late Monday at his home in Milford, N.J., the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office said.

The latest incident happened Sunday afternoon: A witness reported seeing a blue Ford sedan with a Rutgers University sticker driving on the 13th green of one course.

He was released pending a future court date, prosecutors said.

But that time, officers were given a partial license plate number for the vehicle and were told the auto was driven by a "younger white male", prosecutors said.

Police say Richard J. McEwan drove his vehicle onto Trump's Bedminster golf course.

An investigation determined the vehicle was a 2006 Ford Focus belonging to 26-year-old Richard Joseph McEwan, the suspect who also allegedly broke into Swift's Rhode Island home, Robertson said.

McEwan allegedly got into the house by breaking a glass door before he made himself at home and wandered through the plush pad, which Swift bought in April 2013 after breaking up with Conor Kennedy.

McEwan did at least $17,000 in damage to the course, according to authorities. "When officers asked him why he wasn't wearing any, he told them, "I was always taught that when you go into someone's home, you have to take your shoes off", Westerly Police Chief Shawn Lacey told the Sun.

He posted $5,000 bond for the charges of breaking and entering a home without the owner's consent and willful trespassing.

The first incident of vandalism at Trump's New Jersey course occurred later that day, at about 5.30pm.
