On Wednesday morning, Gage County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man accused of stalking a woman who has a protection order against him.

At 8 a.m. Wednesday, Gage County deputies were dispatched to South 82nd Road regarding the alleged protection order violation.

Deputies spoke with the victim, who said James Adler, 51, was sitting in a white pickup watching her. A truck was visible in a nearby field.

He had been sitting there for several hours, and the vehicle had allegedly been there on at least three occasions.

Gage County Court documents state he had been previously arrested for violating the same protection order.

Deputies went to contact Adler, and the pickup left the field and entered Birch Road, then went south on South 68th Road. Adler turned the vehicle around and met deputies, at which time they identified him as the driver. He pulled back into the field and deputies followed the vehicle.

He was pulling the key out of the ignition when deputies approached the vehicle.

Court documents state his eyes were bloodshot and watery, his speech was slurred and a half full bottle of vodka was on the passenger's seat.

He declined to perform sobriety maneuvers and was transported to the jail, where he declined a chemical test as well.

Adler was arrested for violating a protection order, stalking, driving under the influence and refusing to submit to a chemical test.

His bond was set at $7,500, with a 10 percent deposit. His next hearing is set for Oct. 31.
