Jacksonville father finally nabs peeping Tom, police say
A Jacksonville man told police his family had spotted someone looking through the windows of their home on several occasions, at times finding damage to window screens afterward.

Sunday police received a call from the man's 15-year-old daughter who said her father was restraining a man in their yard.

"The victim told me she was seated in the living room when she saw a sillhouette outside the back window," the officer said in the report. 

The girl told her father, who then confronted the suspect outside.

When police arrived at the home in the 6000 block of Forest Stump Lane, they found the father holding James K. Lowery, 60, on the ground in the backyard.

"The suspect had minor injuries due to the complainant confronting him," police said.

According to property records, Lowery is a neighbor of the family.

Lowery, chief engineer at WJXT TV-4, had no explanation as to what he was doing in the yard, but admitted to getting there under his own power even after drinking "an entire bottle of wine," police said.

He has been charged with trespassing with intent to commit an offense, public intoxication and resisting an officer without violence, according to the Duval County jail website.

Would you stop your husband/so or would you cheer him on?

I would cheer him on! Then once the guy is adequately beat up I would stop him.

If they enforced bank regulations like they do park rules, we wouldn't be in this mess

I would let him get a couple of punches in then tell him to stop. I would be scared that my husband would kill him. When it comes to our kids, nothing would stop him.

Violence is never the answer. We'd immediately call the police.

We'd just let the dog take care of the problem.

Considering that if you, or your daughters are wearing a skirt, it is not illegal for a pervert to walk up with a camera phone and take a picture up your, or her skirt, because you have no implied right to privacy I'm surprised more assholes don't get beat up on a daily basis.

I would cheer him on. I had a peeping tom, I looked up to see a freaking camera in my window. Lucky for him he got away before my step dad got outside. I was scared for a long time after that.

Oh and yes, I had been naked. I was changing for bed and saw the camera before I got my shirt on. It was just a tiny basement window, I never thought anything of it

My husband would have broken his neck on the spot.

Where did you hear that?

While it's true that you don't have a right to privacy in public places in general, that doesn't extend to "upskirt" photos, as long as you were properly covered to begin with.

Britney Spears' infamous upskirt photo was not illegal because she flashed everyone while leaving the vehicle.  Sticking a camera phone under someone's dress is very different.  There is a right to privacy when your body is properly covered.  There is not one when you intentionally or unintentionally show your intimate details to people who can observe without invasive means.
