Slinger man arrested after walking into wrong home, claiming it's his and chasing homeowner out

At about 3:30 PM that afternoon, a Hunters Road resident was working outside when he observed a man walk into his house through the garage.

When challenged, the man claimed it was his house and started chasing the resident.

Eventually, the resident was able to lock the man out.

When officers arrived, they found the heavily intoxicated man in the garage. He refused to comply with officers’ commands, at one point telling them to shoot him.

Officers from Slinger and the Sheriff’s Office assisted.

Eventually, the man was pepper sprayed and surrendered.

The Slinger man, 32, had been “house sitting” for some friends, went to a local tavern, walked back to the wrong street, and thought the homeowner was a trespasser.

The man was booked at the County Jail for disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.
