SAN DIEGO (AP) _ A San Diego resident awoke Sunday morning to a shocking discovery: a naked stranger passed out on his downstairs sofa.
San Diego police Lt. Jim Filley says the Pacific Beach homeowner called police after wandering downstairs and finding the snoring man.
Filley says the naked man was drunk and thought he was in his own home in Mission Valley, some 20 miles away.
The man, whose name wasn't released, had taken off his clothes outside the house and walked in through the unlocked front door.
The homeowner declined to press charges. And since the intruder had sobered up, he was released to find his own way home. He couldn't and asked to be taken to jail instead. The patrol office told him he could only arrest him if he committed a crime. The man then removed all his clothing again, on the sidewalk in front of the home, and asked to be arrested for indecent exposure. The weary cop told him to put his clothes back on and he would arrest him.
