A Texas man accused of setting fire to a historic Austin building
claimed during an interview with investigators that he was pop star Taylor Swift. 36-year-old Matthew James Caldwell has been charged with arson, a second-degree felony. Austin police said they were called at 4:03 a.m. to the building for reports of an alarm activation, which they thought was a burglary. When officers arrived, they saw a man looking out the back door of the building before running down the alley. The man, later identified as Caldwell, was detained by police carrying several bottles of wine believed to be stolen from The Austin Club. Police said when they entered the building they found smoke inside and called firefighters to respond. In an interview with investigators, Caldwell denied starting the fires, despite police saying they saw him at the scene. He then told investigators, “My name is Taylor Swift, I told him to burn it down and he did what I told him.”
