MARTIN COUNTY -- Carlos A Flores has a thing for windows, according to his arrest affidavit.

Deputies arrested Mr. Flores Dec. 16 looking into a woman's window and later they say he showed his anger after his arrest by banging against the window of a patrol car.

The 22-year-old Indiantown man faces two felonies and one misdemeanor charge all stemming from his arrest at a house on Martin Avenue in Indiantown.

Deputy Robert Calarco, who made the early morning arrest, said the victims reported an unknown man peeping into their windows. The house is home to a 13-year-old girl, but it was unclear at press time whether she was in any way involved in the incident.

At about 4:30 a.m. deputies found Mr. Flores at the back of the house with his pants undone, according to his arrest report.

He denied any wrongdoing, including spying on the homeowners.

But an eyewitness said he'd seen Mr. Flores peeping through the window and prowling around the property.

When officers arrested him and took him to the Indiantown substation, Mr. Flores "started to bang the door of the holding cell and threw toilet paper all over the holding room," Deputy Calarco reported.

During the transfer to the Martin County Jail, Mr. Flores resisted, refusing to place his legs in the patrol car, according to arrest documents.

Once he got into the car, officers said the man started to bag his head against the window of the patrol car, requiring several officers to restrain him.

"When attempting to place the defendant in restraints, the defendant was actively resisting and kicked me several times in the stomach," Deputies Calarco said.

Mr. Flores is charged with resisting an officer with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer and prowling.

At press time, he remained at the Martin County Jail pending $35,000 bond.
