Boozy night in dog­house for in­truder

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

A DRUNK re­turned home to the wrong flat after a night on the sauce and snug­gled down for a kip – in a DOG’S BAS­KET!

For­tu­nately for the un­named in­truder, Ben­ton – a 150lb Mas­tiff – was not too both­ered by his new sleep­ing part­ner.

But the two women who share the flat in Wauke­sha, Wis­con­sin, with the giant hound were less than happy about their vis­i­tor.

Ben­ton’s owner Lynn Sarver and her flat­mate, Elise Diskerud, woke to find a strange bloke asleep in Ben­ton’s bed.

Elise said: “We were kind of freaked out. I grabbed the knife.”

Lynn added that they crept away qui­etly and called po­lice.

It was later found the man lived just down the street and had come home to the wrong place.

A side door to the two women’s home had been left un­locked ac­ci­den­tally, mak­ing it easy for the man to slip in.

He was re­leased without charge.
