MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — A photographer has told police he was punched in the face by Taylor Swift’s father on the Sydney waterfront hours after the popstar’s Australian tour ended. Ben McDonald said he provided police with a statement alleging the assault by Scott Swift at the Neutral Bay Wharf on Tuesday where the father and daughter had just come ashore from a yacht. The New South Wale Police Force media office confirmed that police were investigating the alleged assault. Taylor Swift’s representative accused members of the media of aggression during the interaction. The representative said in an email that two individuals pushed towards Taylor, grabbing at her security personnel and threatened to throw a female staff member into the water.
