‘Uncontrollable Urges’ And ‘Swampy Waters’ Get Florida Man Arrested



Florida man stalking

A Florida man was arrested after deputies said he was peeking in a woman’s window and then ran when he was caught in the act by authorities, according to local station FOX 35 Orlando.

Citing the Volusia Sheriff’s Office, the station reported that 29-year-old Steven P. Johnson is facing multiple charges, including stalking, after security video appeared to show him on several occasions peeking into a window of a home and then running away.

Other charges include loitering/prowling and resisting an officer without violence. Deputies did not elaborate on the stalking charges but said he was served with an injunction for protection that a judge granted the victim.

The sheriff’s office posted body camera footage of deputies chasing Johnson after a sergeant spotted him walking out from between two homes in the Rivington subdivision in DeBary. When asked where he was coming from, deputies said Johnson took off running.

“After a short foot chase, and with the help of an aerial view from a drone, deputies found Johnson hiding in the water deep into a swampy area,” the sheriff’s office said.

The man was then ordered by deputies to come out of the swamp, where he was arrested.

Deputies said Johnson, who lives in the same neighborhood, about a 5-minute walk from the victim’s home, admitted to peeping into windows and stated he had uncontrollable urges to do so.
