CHICAGO, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- A homeless man has been arrested for allegedly breaking into the townhouse of Chicago White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams, police said Tuesday.

Authorities charged Wayne Field III with entering Williams' home near Chicago's Grant Park during the weekend and drinking beer, eating pizza and defrosting a lobster while inside, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Police also accused Fields of dressing in Williams' clothes and leaving the home with his 2005 World Series championship ring.

The 51-year-old suspect was arrested Monday evening when he allegedly returned to the home and was seen peeking inside, the newspaper said.

Police said Field, who was identified through a hospital bracelet left behind in the townhouse, was still wearing Williams' fur, jeans and sweatshirt when arrested.

He was charged with residential burglary after giving his address as a homeless shelter and was being held on $100,000 bond, the Tribune reported.
