WASHINGTON — A teenager is accused of breaking into a family’s home while intoxicated and falling asleep naked, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office said.
The homeowners were sleeping early Thursday when they were awoken by a stranger outside, who was knocking and yelling to be let in, the sheriff’s office said.
The homeowners opened a window and told the teen to leave, but he repeatedly kicked the door and window. One of the homeowners grabbed a gun and fired a shot into the ground as a warning, but the teenager persisted and eventually broke a window to get into the home’s basement.
The family used furniture to barricade themselves in a bedroom and wait for deputies to arrive.
When deputies got to the home on Pierce Court, they set up a perimeter and got the family outside safely. They then found a 16-year-old boy sleeping on a couch in the living room. He was intoxicated and naked, wrapped in a blanket, the sheriff’s office said.
The teen was turned over to his parents. The sheriff’s office is filing for multiple charges, including unlawful entry, minor in possession of alcohol and vandalism.
