A Ferndale resident awoke to an odd find about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning: Clothes that weren’t his strewn across the floor of the bathroom of his apartment on Leland.

He investigated and found a stranger, who authorities identified as Anthony Lee Jagger, 34, of Ferndale sleeping on his living room couch, Ferndale Police Lt. William Wilson said in a news release.

The resident didn’t know Jagger, nor did a guest sleeping in another bedroom. They couldn’t wake the man, so they called police.

“Officers arrived and woke Jagger, and found him to be drunk,” Wilson said.

Jagger was arrested and charged with trespassing.

Something similar to this happened to me. Some drunk tried to force his way in our house last year late at night and the police response was unacceptable. They seem to think this is no big deal. Could turn out tragically and they should take it more seriously. Breaking and entering is what happened not trespassing!

When I first heard about this I thought it was certainly a 21-22 year old that had yet to discover their limits. Then I read the story. THIRTY FOUR?! COME ON MAN!!!! GET YOUR LIFE TOGETHER BRO.

He got the moves like Jagger…if those moves are rolling into your house and crashing on your couch. Lucky he woke up at all. Many houses would've welcomed him with lethal force. How did he get in anyway? Did he break in? Was the door unlocked? Was the door open and he just walked in? This isn't the first time I've read about this happening. Surprised someone hasn't been killed by now. Being a blackout drunk is a dangerous undertaking. You can die in so many ways.
