Birmingham police are trying to determine whether an intruder was truly dangerous — or decidedly drunk — when he broke into a home last week and passed out on a bed where a 6-year-old boy was asleep.It continues:
Why is this so crazy? Well, in addition to the fact that a drunk guy climbed a flight of stairs and passed out in some kid's bed, I'm pretty sure that this is the flat that Lauren and I used to rent before we bought our own. I can't think of any other duplexes on that block of Ann Street. I always double-checked the locks though.
The July 18 incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. in the 900 block of Ann Street, or two blocks east of Lincoln and Pierce. Ruby said the young boy tiptoed into his parent’s bedroom and whispered, “There’s a man in my room.”
Sure enough, the parents went into the boy’s room and found a man lying on the bed. The mom told detectives the man appeared quite surprised and “obviously intoxicated.”
Ruby said the man claimed he had been invited into the house, a two-story duplex with different families living on the separate floors. After repeating his claim, the man stumbled down the stairs, left through the front door and rode away on a 10-speed bike.
