A MAN who broke into ex-New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his wife Gisele Bundchen’s mansion in Massachusetts and lay on their couch on Monday has been arrested.
Zanini Cineus, 34, has again gotten into trouble after being charged last year with stealing a signed Brady jersey worth about $10,000 from the Patriots Hall of Fame.

The security company told police that an intruder had been captured on camera at the house with no one else inside.
Officers found Cineus lying on a couch in the basement and he is being detained while awaiting a competency evaluation on Tuesday.
Cineus, whose last known address is in Brockton, Massachusetts, pleaded not guilty to charges of trespassing, breaking and entering, entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a felony and attempted larceny.

Brady, who played for the Patriots for the first 20 seasons of his career, moved with his family to Florida after he signed a two-year, $50million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this year.
The quarterback’s 12,112-square-foot mansion is reportedly for sale in an off-market listing and was most recently listed at $33.9million.
Brady and Bundchen bought the property in Brookline in 2013 and had the mansion built and completed in 2015.
The couple put it up for sale for $39.5million at the end of last year, before shaving off about 6 million and trying to sell it privately.

Brady’s mansion has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a 2,400-square-foot barn, a yoga studio, guest room and driveway that can accommodate 20 cars, according to the Boston Business Journal.
Cineus, a former Rhode Island resident, allegedly tried to steal a Brady jersey from the hall of fame last year by hiding it under his shirt along with a glove.
However, police caught Cineus when he reportedly slipped in the process of fleeing.

He was ordered to stay away from Gillette Stadium, where the Patriots hall of fame is located.
Officials said that Cineus, who is homeless according to TMZ, has “several active warrants out of Wrentham District Court stemming from incidents that occurred in Foxboro, MA late last year.”
Brady and his family live in Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida, in a home they are leasing from Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter.
