Intoxicated man goes to wrong home
A Sylvan Lake man walking home on Wednesday, December 23 from a downtown Birmingham bar allegedly stumbled into the wrong house when trying to find his mother’s home, Birmingham police said.
Birmingham police responded about 10:56 p.m. to the 1600 block of Washington Boulevard on a report of a stranger trying to enter a home in the area. The man was unable to enter the home, left the area and headed north on Washington.
Police said the man, 21, was located nearby, and said he was trying to find his mother’s house after drinking at a downtown pub. Police said the man smelled of alcohol and was unsteady and stumbling on his feet. A preliminary breath test indicated his blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit. Upon further questioning, the man said he may have gone to the wrong home and wasn’t trying to break in.
Birmingham police issued the man a citation for disorderly conduct. He was held at the police station until he was sober, then released.
