(WGHP) — A California woman has been charged with trespassing on the property of country star Kenny Chesney after police found the woman at the home with “at least one, if not two bottles of wine with her.”
According to WKRN-TV, authorities said Melissa Mansfield of Murrieta, Calif., was arrested around 2 a.m. Wednesday in a bathroom near a swimming pool at Chesney’s hilltop home south of Nashville.
The woman reportedly traveled by Greyhound Bus from California to Knoxville. She then took a limo from Nashville to the country singer’s home. The woman told authorities she knows Chesney and he sent the limo, but a Chesney rep denies those claims.
When the woman arrived at the home around 2 a.m. Wednesday, Chesney was not home. According to reports, she found a way around Chesney’s gate, which triggered an alarm.
Mansfield was reportedly arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and criminal trespassing, and posted a $1,000 bail.
