A Bed For The Night?

Naked drunk man misses bed by twenty miles

A drunk party-goer whose attempt to get back home saw him miss by twenty miles and fall asleep naked on a complete stranger's couch made an 'honest mistake', police said.

The man apparently thought that he'd successfully managed to walk to his home in Mission Valley, California when he undressed and fell asleep on the couch - but in fact he'd walked in completely the wrong direction, ending up at a condo in San Diego, around twenty miles away.

When he arrived after a night of drinking, he decided for some reason to take all his clothes off on the porch, before getting inside the condo and passing out on the couch - where he was discovered in the morning by the homeowner, who promptly headed back upstairs, armed himself and told his wife to call the police.

Police Lt. Jim Filley told the San Diego Union-Tribune: 'This gentleman thought he had been walking into his own home. We think it was an honest mistake.'

The homeowner, after the initial scare, agreed with this interpretation, and declined to press charges. The naked interloper was allowed to retrieve his clothes and return to his actual home, where he presumably tried to recover from a monster hangover.

'He was sober by then, so he got dressed and went on his way,' Filley said.
