Prosecutors have decided not to prosecute a man accused of trespassing on property owned by singer Taylor Swift.
24 year old Jacob Kulke has been in the Metro Jail since his arrest on December 13th.
Police have said Kulke scaled a secured gate and fence outside the home on Harding Place. According to the arrest warrant, he wanted to surprise her on her birthday.
Prosecutors declined to pursue a trial in part because Kulke has already served jail time consistent with the misdemeanor trespassing charge.
Kulke still faces a probation violation charge in Colorado, and he is being held in Tennessee as a fugitive from justice.
He is fighting extradition to Colorado and will have another hearing in Nashville on January 29th.
Kulke remains in the Metro Jail on a $350,000 bond because of the Colorado case.
