Taylor Swift's Dad's Alleged Assault Case Against Australian Photographer Gets Major Update

Taylor Swift’s father, Scott Swift, has been cleared of assault charges stemming from an alleged brawl in Australia. The charges originated from an incident following Taylor’s final performance in Sydney, in which an Australian photographer claimed her father hit him in the face. The incident apparently occurred on February 27, which coincided with Taylor’s final Eras Tour performance. Following an investigation conducted by the North Shore Police Command, the Daily Mail UK announced on Tuesday, March 26 that no further action was required.


Ben McDonald said that Scott approached him at a ferry pier in Sydney as he and his daughter disembarked a luxury boat at 2:30 a.m. “She got off the boat, she walked towards security guards who were shoving umbrellas in our faces, and then he charged,” Ben claimed to the Daily Mail Australia. He continued: “In 23 years of taking pictures, I have never seen anything like it.”


In response to McDonald’s charges, Swift’s representative told CNN that “two individuals were aggressively pushing their way towards Taylor, grabbing at her security personnel, and threatening to throw a female staff member into the water.”


Scott and a security officer can be seen in a video obtained by the Daily Mail warning Ben not to touch the umbrella Taylor was using as a barrier against photographers. Taylor Swift and her entourage were then seen leaving The Crown Hotel in Barangaroo about 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, following the alleged altercation. She departed the nation to attend her next concert in Singapore a few days later.

Taylor’s father has been a constant presence on the Eras Tour, accompanying her to various events and venues. Just days before the alleged incident, Scott was spotted handing out sandwiches to fans during a sold-out show in Sydney.
