A state of confusion mixed with a state of inebriation might result in something like this:
A Gwinnett Police officer was dispatched to an after-midnight burglary call at a Peachtree Corners apartment complex on Peachtree Corners Circle on May 11.
When the officer arrived, he saw a man, apparently the burglary suspect, backing away from the building and another man screaming at him to “get out of here.” The officer secured the suspect, then spoke with the angry man.
The man told police he heard someone try to unlock his front door with a key and when that didn’t work, proceed to kick the door until the door jam ripped away from the wall.
The suspect entered the apartment, took off his shoes and threw his keys on the floor, acting like he was home. But he was met by the resident, who had a knife and backed the suspect out of the apartment.
That’s when police arrived.
The officer asked the suspect why he kicked in the door.
He stated “I live here,” according to the incident report.
The officer asked the man his apartment number. “11300-A,” was the reply.
He kicked in the door to 9400-A.
"He seemed confused ... [and] appeared to be heavily intoxicated due to slurring his words, swaying while standing and having bloodshot, watery eyes," the officer wrote in the report.
He was cited for disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.
