MATTOON -- A man faces charges after allegedly trying to break into a home. 25-year old Christopher Maurer was arrested for criminal damage to property.

Police responded to the 500-block of North 32nd Street, about 6 am, Friday. Authorities say Maurer was drunk, naked and trying to break in a door with a hammer. He did not live at the residence and had no business there.

Maurer reportedly fled when the resident saw him. Maurer was taken into custody and found to also be wanted in Clark County for driving on a revoked license.
