EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Evansville Police say they were called to home Sunday night, and found a 14-year-old extremely intoxicated. 

Another teen reported they had been drinking vodka at a home on Glendale Avenue with some other friends and 52-year-old Daniel James. 

He says at one point, he found James with his pants down, while the 14-year-old was trying to push him away.

They then took the girl to another house. She was taken to the hospital to be treated for extreme intoxication. 

She says James gave them the alcohol, and they had also smoked marijuana. 

Police say Facebook messages between James and the 14-year-old show he had told her he had vodka for her over at his house. 

Police say James denies trying to engage in any sexual contact.

They say he is a registered sex offender. 

His charges include attempted rape and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
