WKRN-TV cites a Nashville police report that says the resident summoned officers Wednesday and told them he called out to the stranger, who responded by screaming and dropping the juice.
When officers asked the man to exit the home, they say he did so but was wearing only a T-shirt.
The resident reported the man had consumed ice cream from the home in addition to the juice.
Police said they took James Wooten, 67, into custody on charges including aggravated burglary. His bail was set at $5,000.
