A 54-year-old Junction City man was arrested after unlawfully entering a home while he was drunk.
Joseph Mayek was taken into custody on July 3 after he entered a residence on the 1500 block of Riverview Dr. in the Town of Carson. Portage County deputies responding to the call found Mayek in the residence, but he was unable to answer their questions due to his level intoxication.
The homeowners said Mayek entered their residence without permission and was unable to respond to their questions. He was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and transported to the Portage County Jail.
He appeared via video in Portage County Circuit Court on Monday and was released on a $500 signature bond.
He was also ordered to have no further contact with the homeowners or their residence and to abstain from alcohol. His initial appearance is scheduled for July 20.
