Authorities said a Mississippi Gulf Coast man apparently thought he was at his girlfriend's place when he wandered into another couple's home and fell asleep on their couch. Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd told The Mississippi Press that a couple in the St. Martin community found a stranger snoozing on their couch and cuddling a teddy bear late Saturday.

The sheriff said the couple told the 34-year-old man to leave and he drove off in a dark blue Chevrolet Silverado. Byrd said deputies saw the truck weaving, and at one point it mowed down some mailboxes.

The man was charged early Sunday with trespassing and driving under the influence of alcohol. He was released on a $1,000 bond.
