(AP) AUSTIN, Texas - AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A Texas man accused of stalking singer Taylor Swift in Austin, Texas, has been charged with violating a lifetime restraining order.

Travis County records show Frank Andrew Hoover is being held Friday on a charge of violating a protective order issued in Kansas that requires him to stay at least 500 feet away from the multi-Grammy award winning artist.

An affidavit says Hoover followed Swift's motorcade after her Oct. 22 concert at Austin's Circuit of the Americas to a private area at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The affidavit says the 39-year-old suspect came within 50 feet of Swift. Hangar workers say he talked about wanting to accompany Swift onto her plane.

Hoover, of Austin, was arrested Thursday. Bond is set at $100,000. No attorney is listed to speak on Hoover's behalf.
