Drunken man stumbles into elderly couple's bed, police say

Authorities say an elderly Michigan couple got a surprise when a 27-year-old drunken man climbed into bed with them after mistakenly wandering into their cottage.

The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports the man left his young children home alone nearby Saturday night in Putnam Township, about 40 miles west of Detroit, before showing up in the couple's bedroom about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

The 75-year-old man grabbed a handgun and left with his 72-year-old wife. Officers responded, found the intruder asleep and handcuffed him.

The man told investigators he had thought he was going home. He was held on suspicion on illegal entry and released on bond pending formal charges.

Police found the 2- and 4-year-old children sleeping at home and they're staying with neighbors.
