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.

TBI: Women more likely family violence victims
June 20, 2013 08:10 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new study of domestic violence in Tennessee last year found women were nearly two times more likely to be victimized than men and children were the victims in 16 percent of all family violence cases.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put out a report this week analyzing crime statistics from law enforcement agencies across the state. Their findings show that nearly 15 percent of all crimes reported were domestic in nature.
The study looked at the relationships between victims and offenders as well as the influence of drugs and alcohol on family violence. The study found that more than 17 percent of family violence involves drugs or alcohol, with alcohol being the most common.
