Winona Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said the woman discovered the pants alongside a pair of shoes in her garage Monday and the owner of the clothing items had apparently propped a picnic table up against her car, the Winona Daily News reported Wednesday.
A wallet in the pants was traced to a 21-year-old man whom officers had picked up and taken home Saturday when he was spotted knocking on the woman's door while intoxicated and lacking pants. The man was released to a friend.
The man told police Monday he had been very drunk at the time of the incident and couldn't remember his actions. He offered to pay for any damages at the woman's home and wasn't cited by police, Williams said.
