SAN DIEGO, July 5 (UPI) -- San Diego police say an "honest mistake" led a drunken partier to get undressed and fall asleep in a condo nearly 20 miles from his own home.

"This gentleman thought he had been walking into his own home, which is in Mission Valley," Police Lt. Jim Filley told The San Diego Union-Tribune. "We think it was an honest mistake."


Mistake or not, the naked interloper was way off target. The condo he was found in Sunday morning was in Pacific Beach, a bar-heavy neighborhood on the other side of Interstate 5 from Mission Valley.

The homeowner who discovered the house guest apparently agreed with the conclusion of the investigating officers and declined to press charges. The suspect was allowed to go to his real home to reconstruct the night's events.

"He was sober by then, so he got dressed and went on his way," Filley said.
