Man arrested on DWI suspicion after window-peeping call
An Austin man suspected of peeking into windows in the southwest part of town was arrested early Wednesday morning on probable cause for DWI.
According to the police report, officers were sent to the 600 block of 12th Avenue Southwest shortly after 6 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a male peeking into windows.
Officers noticed a green Dodge neon leaving the area, and the vehicle matched the description given by the person who had called police.
Authorities stopped the car in the 1300 block of Sixth Street Southwest. The officer noted a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle after it was stopped. A preliminary blood test indicated the driver was over the legal limit to drive, according to the report.
The report says the man denied having a camera, but the officer noticed a camera in the man's jacket pocket. The camera, which was taken as evidence, allegedly has photos of people changing clothes or exercising.
Police Chief Brian Krueger said the 41-year-old man could be charged today. The Austin Post-Bulletin typically doesn't identify people until they've been charged.
