Kenny Chesney's Tenn. Home Broken Into By Woman

Rick Diamond/Getty Images(FRANKLIN, Tenn.) -- A detailed plan by a California woman claiming to be the girlfriend of country music superstar Kenny Chesney ended in her arrest inside the singer’s Franklin, Tenn., home, according to police.

Melissa Carol Mansfield of Murrieta, Calif., was arrested around 2 a.m. Wednesday in a bathroom near the swimming pool of Chesney’s home just outside of Nashville, Williamson County authorities said.

Police say Mansfield had been drinking wine and smoking cigarettes by the singer’s pool.

“[The] corporal was looking around the perimeter and found her in a restroom,” Williamson County Sheriff’s Deputy Hugh Tharpe told Nashville affiliate WKRN. “She had at least one if not two bottles of wine with her.”

Mansfield, police say, traveled to Nashville from Knoxville on a Greyhound bus.  She then upgraded to a limousine to arrive in style at Chesney’s home, about 25 miles away from the Nashville bus station.

Once there she got around the gate and inside Chesney’s mansion, but was caught when the home’s alarm system alerted deputies to an intruder.

Chesney was not home at the time of the incident, both his publicist and Williamson County Sheriff’s officials confirmed.

It is not known where Chesney, just nominated for nine Academy of Country Music awards, was at the time of the intrusion.  He is scheduled to begin his Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw on June 2 in Florida.

The Knoxville native purchased the more than 11,000 square foot home in 2010 for just over $9 million.

Mansfield was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and criminal trespassing.

She was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bail.  She will next appear in court on Feb. 23.

Bristol Palin Buys House in Arizona

Photo Courtesy - ABC/Adam Larkey(MARICOPA, Ariz.) -- Bristol Palin bought a five-bedroom house in a development called Cobblestone Farms, in Maricopa, Ariz., a suburb of Pinal County.

The 20-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin bought the house for $172,000 from a North Dakota couple, according to The Arizona Republic.

The Palin family offered no comment on the sale, but it has generated speculation on what Bristol and her mother Sarah's plans are for the home. TMZ.com is reporting that Ms. Palin may be eying an Arizona college.

Public records state the 3,900-square-foot house was built in 2006, and purchased for $329,560. The property had been in foreclosure earlier this year.

Hardly one to stay out of the headlines, Bristol Palin recently made big news with her stint on the 11th season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. She came in third, even though she had the least experience among all the contestants. After 10 weeks of stiff competition, Bristol, whose spot in the finals was surrounded by controversy for her low scores in previous weeks, said she was ready to return home to Alaska and spend time with her family.

It is unclear if her new Arizona home will be a permanent or seasonal residence.
