A man was detained outside Taylor Swift's residence on Wednesday afternoon.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that the man was detained outside the 26-year-old singer's house at 4:30 p.m. after neighbors got "spooked" when they saw him standing outside their homes and alerted authorities.

Police responded and detained the man until they completed their investigation. He was subsequently transported to the West L.A. Division police station for further medical evaluation. He was not charged with a crime and is not currently in police custody.

While the man's identity has not been released, the LAPD did confirm that the individual was taken to a local hospital over night for a psyche evaluation. He was not arrested.

According to an eyewitness, the man was allegedly yelling for Swift to come out of her home, which frightened neighbors.

Swift's rep released a statement to ET addressing the incident: "This is why it's irresponsible for the media to publish the addresses or recent real estate transactions of celebrities."
