The homeowner said he told the man to leave when he saw him in his yard. The man, later identified as 66-year-old John Iles, argued with the homeowner but eventually left, according to investigators.

Later in the day, the homeowner got a call from his daughter saying there was a naked man in their house under their pool table. Investigator said the homeowner went back to the house and saw found out the naked man his daughter saw was Iles.

Police said the homeowner confronted Iles and ordered him to get out of his house. Officers said Iles then assaulted the homeowner.

The homeowner left the house and called the police. When police got to the home they arrested Iles. He now faces a first-degree burglary charge.
