JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man was arrested Sunday night after he was caught looking into his neighbor's back window.

James Lowery, 60, was charged with trespass, disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer without violence after his neighbor held him down on the ground until police arrived.

Lowery told police he did not know how he ended up in his neighbor's yard and he then told police he walked there "under his own power" and that he had "drank an entire bottle of wine," the report said.

The incident happened in the 6200 block of Forest Stump Lane.
The neighbor told police that his family had seen a person looking into their windows several times and "that they have found the window screens damaged or removed after these incidents," according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report.

A silhouette was observed by the neighbor's 15-year-old daughter in the back window. Her father went outside to confront the person and recognized Lowery as his next-door neighbor, according to the report.

The neighbor went to his back yard to confront Lowery and held him down until police arrived.

Police ordered Lowery to turn over onto this stomach, but he continued to lay on his side with his left hand under him, according to the report.

Lowery had to be dragged onto his stomach to be handcuffed and when police were taking him to the patrol car, he stopped walking and had to be dragged for a few steps, according to police. He was treated for minor injuries.

Lowery was released from the Duval County Jail on bond on Monday evening.

According to WJXT's website, Lowery worked as the chief engineer for the station.
