Matthew D. Walker, 22, of the first block of Jill Marie Court near St. Peters, was charged Tuesday with first-degree trespassing and resisting arrest.
A St. Charles County Sheriff's deputy said Walker was requested to leave his neighbor’s home numerous times and told to stay away. However, Walker threatened and antagonized a man, challenging him to fight, the deputy said.
When deputies arrived, the man ran away and was able to elude them for a long time, a deputy reported. Walker was caught running out his back door as deputies knocked on his front door, according to a probable cause statement prepared by deputies.
Walker was being held in St. Charles County jail Tuesday. Bail was set at $5,000.
