Sheffield Lake Police--Buck Walls
SHEFFIELD LAKE -- Who's that sleeping in my bed?
Michael Johnson was surprised when he woke up on Saturday and found a drunken man sleeping in his waterbed beside him.
Johnson said that the man was not there when he went to bed and that he had never seen him before.
Police were called, and Buck Walls, 29, who lives in the same city but in a different house, was arrested on a charge of burglary. Police said Walls had been so drunk that he walked into the wrong house and climbed into the wrong bed.
Capt. Tony Campo said when Walls awakened, he refused to leave the house, saying he knew the owner.
According to the police report, Walls was still drunk when police arrived.
"He had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath," the report said. "He was swaying back and forth and had great difficulty maintaining his balance."
A short time after police placed him in a holding cell, Walls' mother called the station to report her son missing after a night of drinking.
Campo said he had never seen anything like it.
Walls lived on the south side of the city, while he was found in a house by the lake.

This reminds me of a story that happened to my neighbor. She forgot to lock her front window for the night and went to bed. She awoke to find a man sleeping on her couch, freaked out, ran out of the house and called police from a neighbor. The police arrived, woke up the man (drunk as a skunk), took him to jail and so forth. Come to find out he was a brother of a neighbor and was visiting from out of town. In his drunken state, he thought he was at his brother's house, could not get in the door with his key and found the open window, crawled in and fell asleep on the couch.
I don't know what if anything happened to the drunk, but would bet my bottom dollar all her windows stay locked now.

Burglary? Doesn't sound like he was able to do anything but sleep. Glad no one was hurt. He probably doesn't even remember how he got there.

LOL...they were spooning.
I think this Michael Johnson probably slipped him a roofie....took him home to the waterbed....took advantage of him and then called the cops.... Buck Walls is probably very sore today.

Remember what Sgt. Hartman said about unlocked footlockers in "Full Metal Jacket". Sure, charge Walls with burglary, but charge Johnson with stupid while you're at it. Lock your freakin' door, numbie.

Maybe he was out ice fishing and got disoriented.
