A middle-aged man was arrested in Edinburgh over the weekend for alleged voyeurism at one of Taylor Swift’s sold-out Eras Tour shows.

Scotland Police Superintendent David Happs confirmed to TMZ that the 64-year-old, who has not been named, was charged with voyeurism during Saturday’s show at Murrayfield Stadium.

It’s unclear if the suspect, who has since been released but will appear in court at a later date, committed the alleged crime in relation to Swift or others in attendance.

Voyeurism, defined as “the practice of obtaining sexual gratification from observing others,” is a sexual offense under Scottish law.

The arrest occurred at the second of the Grammy winner’s three consecutive performances in the Scottish capital over the weekend, two of which she had to halt in order to address crowd members in need of security or medical assistance.

“We need help right in front of me, please,” Swift said in the middle of her I Know Places and Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve mashup. “We’re not gonna keep singing, we’re just gonna keep talking about the people that need help in front of me.”

Though she resumed playing once the fan was addressed, Swift had to enact a similar call to action during All Too Well the following night, requesting assistance from the venue staff no less than four times, according to video circulating on TikTok.

“I still don’t see any help over there,” Swift said as her calls for attention went unanswered.

A couple also took the opportunity to get engaged Friday night during Swift’s performance of Cardigan, a milestone she shouted out from the stage.

“I love performing this entire show in the sunlight ’cause I’m pretty sure I just saw somebody get engaged over here,” said the Love Story singer. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
