Police rule out charges against Taylor Swift’s father for assault in Australia

Sydney (Australia) – The Australian Police indicated this Tuesday that it rules out pressing charges against the father of the American singer Taylor Swift after being accused of attacking a photographer at the end of his daughter’s tour of the oceanic country.

The New South Wales State Police, whose capital is Sydney, said in a brief statement that “there will be no further police action” after carrying out an investigation into the complaint.

In the early hours of February 27, Scott Swift, 71, was accused of punching photographer Ben McDonald, 51, in the face when he was waiting outside a Sydney harbor to take images of the singer.

”I was chasing Taylor. (She) got off a yacht in Neutral Bay and walked along the dock with an umbrella over her head and a couple of security (guards) around her. The security people pushed us with their umbrellas. Then her father decided to punch me,” McDonald then alleged in statements to The Sydney Morning Herald.

For her part, a spokesperson for the singer told the American magazine People after the complaint that “two individuals were violently pushing towards Taylor, grabbing her security personnel and risking throwing a member of the team into the water.” .

Taylor Swift, an artist who has won 12 Grammy Awards, offered seven concerts between February 16 and 26 in the cities of Sydney and Melbourne as part of her ‘The Eras Tour’.
