    A Mesa homeowner kept an intruder at bay early Wednesday morning after the man jumped into the homeowner's yard, police records show.

    Police said Richard Anthony Avila, 38, of Mesa jumped into a yard in the 200 block of South Allen just after 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, but was confronted by the homeowner, who had a gun.

    "Avila proceeded to push past the homeowner to gain entry into the residence," police reported.

    The homeowner grabbed Avila by the throat and pushed him out of the house and onto the ground, where the he held him until police arrived, records show.

    Police reported the homeowner did not know Avila.

    Avila was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of criminal trespassing.

    The BG must have been drunk or high on drugs to push past an armed home owner. I had an old lady beating on my door at 3 am. she had gone for a walkand got lost. she was very drunk. I finaly got her to give me her phone number and I then called her daughter who came and got her.

    I wonder what the chances of getting a conviction on Avila are. Doesn't sound like there's much in the way of physical evidence -- proof -- that he ever tried to muscle his way into the home illegally. Just the say-so of the homeowner.
