It's unclear exactly how he got in there, but apparently 18-year-old Andrew Davison drank a fifth of vodka and somehow managed to find his way into Tonya Palmer's closet.
Palmer was picking up clothes near her closet early Wednesday morning when she noticed something peculiar.
"I went to pick up some of the clothes and they were warm, so that kind of startled me and I bent over and I could hear breathing," she told WKRN.
She woke up her husband and they discovered Davison passed out drunk. While Palmer's husband held the sleeping suspect at gunpoint, she called 911.
"I know that every time I open a closet door there's going to be that instant of is it okay to open the closet door," she said.
When Knox County Sheriff's deputies arrived, "Davison appeared extremely intoxicated and was unaware of his location."
Davison has been charged with aggravated criminal trespass and underage consumption.
