A 20-year-old North Vernon man was arrested Wednesday and charged with invasion of privacy and resisting law enforcement, according to police.

Around noon, police received numerous calls regarding a man forcing his way into several homes in Country Squire Lakes near North Vernon then yelling at the occupants for no apparent reason. The last caller reported the man was threatening children in a residence.

An Indiana State Trooper was in the area and noticed a man with no shoes or socks walking by. The man had a blank stare in his eyes and seemed very agitated, police said.

The man first complied with police but later began to resist, which led police to tase the man to bring him under control, according to Indiana State Police.

The man identified as Levi Hawkins was taken into custody and facing multiple counts of invasion of privacy (class D felony) and resisting law enforcement (class A misdemeanor). Hawkins was treated at the scene for minor injuries from the incident then transported to the Jennings County Jail.
