From [HERE] A Pasco County man was arrested over the weekend for stalking a man who walked by his home and later resisting arrest.
The incident happened after 7 p.m. Saturday on Congress Street near Kentfield Avenue in New Port Richey.
According to an arrest report, 44-year-old Dennis Bayona saw a black man walk by his house and started following him. Deputies say Bayona tried to grab the victim's shoulder, but the man pulled away and started walking faster to get away.
Bayona is accused of following and harassing the man for about a mile. The victim says he asked Bayona several times to stop following him and leave him alone.
The victim told deputies Bayona called him NGHR. Bayona is also accused of telling the victim he "owned" him.
A deputy who was in the area noticed the victim being followed by Bayona. The deputy then started investigating and said in the arrest report that Bayona was acting belligerent as he kept going up to the victim.
The deputy then stepped between the two and told Bayona to calm down and back away. Bayona was eventually arrested when he continued to act belligerent and disorderly, according to the arrest report.
The arrest report says Bayona started pulling away from the deputy after one handcuff was placed on him. The deputy had to physically restrain Bayona on the ground to arrest him but says Bayona continued to resist.
After his arrest, Bayona admitted he started following the victim and said the victim did not commit any crime.
Bayona was arrested for stalking and resisting arrest without violence. His arrest report lists his occupation as "A/C repair."
