That’s Not My Wife: Alleged Drunk Winds Up in Wrong House—and Bed

Hey, at some point, we’ve all needed a good night’s rest after a bout of partying. It just may not be the best time to meet your mom’s neighbors.

Police said a 26-year-old Connecticut man thought he was in his mother’s home early Saturday morning when he, in fact, drunkenly wandered into another apartment, crawled into bed and fell fast asleep. Whoops.

The victim told authorities that he heard someone — he assumed his wife — enter his home, walk upstairs and make themselves at home around 1:30 a.m. Upon rolling over to instead find a sleeping stranger engaged in the party foul of the century, the victim called 911.


The alleged intruder, later identified as Tyler Sullivan, of Haddam, Connecticut, was still asleep and “highly intoxicated’’ when Clinton police officers arrived, according to a police report.

Sullivan was charged with first-degree criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, with bail set at $1,000.

It’s been a banner week for bizarre crime in Connecticut. In addition to sleeping beauty, the state’s other criminal news of note included a convicted killer who sued his prison for access to porn and a woman who happened upon a mentally ill man raping her pit bull in broad daylight.
