Woman breaks into Chesney's home, found with wine

A Southern California woman has reportedly been accused of breaking into Kenny Chesney's home in Wednesday's early hours, but it doesn't appear that she was looking for anything other than companionship - and maybe a few glasses of wine.

According to CNN San Diego affiliate 10 News, a woman by the name of Melissa Mansfield had a strategy in place to gain access to Chesney's Nashville home.

The station reports that Mansfield hopped a Greyhound from Knoxville to Nashville and then took a limo to the country singer's home. Mansfield claims that she knows Chesney, and that he sent her the limo. A rep for Chesney, however, says the singer doesn't know the woman.

When she arrived at the home around 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Chesney wasn't there. According to the report, Mansfield found a way around Chesney's gate, which triggered his alarm system.

When police arrived, they found Mansfield in a restroom on the property with "at least one, if not two bottles of wine with her."

Hugh Tharpe, speaking for the Williamson County Sheriff's Office, said that Mansfield "claims to have come from east Tennessee at the invitation of the homeowner [Chesney]," who was out of state. "She did claim to have a relationship with Chesney but that wasn't confirmed at all," Tharpe continued.

Mansfield was reportedly arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and criminal trespassing, and posted a $1,000 bail.

      This information is now oetuatdd, the Leo Chesney Center now goes up to 60 months for a inmate and has increased the security level of the facility from level 1 to 2, to levels 1,2, and 3. TI-Sat also has been totally redesigned since then, and the facility can hold up to 318 not 200.

    At least she took a limo to his house, and didn't show up in a Greyhound Bus honking the horn to pick him up for their date.
