Singer Taylor Swift's notorious stalker is finally behind bars after a New York City judge denied bail on Thursday and ordered him to be held in prison until a formal hearing.

David Crowe, 33, of Seattle, Washington was arrested by authorities on Wednesday for violating a protection order after he had been caught rummaging through a trash can near Swift's residence in Manhattan, according to the New York Post.

He had been spotted outside Swift's residence more than 30 times in the past two months, and was arrested three times within the past week.

This incident occurred an hour after he had been released without bail on stalking and harassment charges in prior incidents by Judge Marisol Martinez Alonso.

During the arraignment on Thursday, Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Andrew Warshawer told the judge that Crowe had "willfully disobeyed the order of protection issued by this court — and by your honor herself — yesterday following his arraignment," according to NY Post.

"The defendant has made it clear that he cannot follow the court’s orders, as the documents and photos available make clear," said Warshawer, who presented photographic evidence with a time stamp that featured Crowe outside the world-famous singer's residence.

He asked Alonso to set a $100,000 cash bail, or for Crowe to be held at the prison on Rikers Island.

Judge Alonso, who released Crowe only to re-offend, decided to deny bail and send the stalker to Rikers Island.

"Mr. Crowe, once again, I'm going to be issuing a temporary order of protection in favor of the named party,” Alonso said, according to the outlet. "I’m going to revoke the previous order I released you under … and I’m going to commit the defendant under custody."

Crowe’s public defender, Katherine Bajuk, requested her client to undergo a mental health exam to reveal whether Crowe is mentally fit to withstand trial.

Judge Alonso agreed and set the date for Feb. 7.

Crowe is a student at Seattle University Law School.
