Williamson County deputies say Melissa Mansfield had a well-thought out plan to get into country music star Kenny Chesney's home in Nashville, Tenn.
Deputies say the Murrieta woman took a Greyhound bus from Knoxville to Nashville. Then, Mansfield took a limousine -- which she claims Chesney sent for her -- 25 miles to his gated home. She arrived at the home just after 2 a.m. Wednesday.
"She claims to have come from east Tennessee at the invitation of the homeowner and the homeowner is out of the state not even home but she claims she had a relationship with the homeowner, who invited her there," said Hugh Tharpe, who is with the Williamson County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators said she somehow got around the gate and inside Chesney's mansion.
Chesney was not home, but his alarm system notified deputies. When they arrived, they found Mansfield in the back patio near his pool.
"They found her in a restroom and she had at least one if not two bottles of wine with her," said Tharpe.
Mansfield was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and criminal trespassing.
"She did claim to have a relationship with Mr. Chesney and they were dating but that is not confirmed at all," said Tharpe.
Representatives for Chesney said the singer does not know Mansfield.
Mansfield's bail was set at $1,000. She posted bail and is due back in court on Feb. 23.
