James Hobbs was arrested on Dec. 27 and was charged with burglary, criminal mischief and disorderly intoxication, as well as giving false information to law enforcement, according to online jail records.

The victim told police that Hobbs had come up to his front door on Dec. 27 demanding money, WBBH reported. The homeowner told Hobbs to leave.

Police said that rather than leave, Hobbs hid behind the homeowner’s vehicle in the driveway before breaking into the home via the pool door. In charging documents filed in Collier County Court, detectives said that the victim saw Hobbs on his patio and locked his slider door, “at which point Hobbs pulled the door to the point of breaking the locking device” and went inside the home.

The victim then ran out of the house in fear and called 911.

Deputies said that when they arrived, they found Hobbs inside the home’s master bathroom on the toilet. In the charging documents, deputies said that Hobbs refused to comply with orders to get off the toilet until an officer took out his taser and activated its red light.

While he was being arrested, Hobbs allegedly asked officers to “speed up” the process so that he could get back to drinking, deputies said in charging documents.
