Drunk man wanders into Lebanon home, spends night on couple’s couch

Seamus Lyles

LEBANON, Ind. – A Lebanon couple found an unknown and unwelcome houseguest sleeping on their couch earlier this month.

According to court documents, the couple called 911 around 6:30 a.m. on Oct. 3 and stayed upstairs while they waited for police to arrive.

A Boone County sheriff’s deputy discovered Seamus Lyles, 22, lying on a downstairs couch. The deputy stirred Lyles, who said he thought he was in his own apartment.

Lyles explained that he’d been out drinking with friends the night before. Lyles—who had a black eye—told the deputy he must have been in a fight.

Lyles said he didn’t know how he got to the house because he thought he’d walked back to his own apartment. A portable breathalyzer test found his blood-alcohol concentration with 0.12, according to court documents.

The deputy said there were no indications of forced entry. The front door had been opened a few inches from where Lyles had entered.

Lyles was taken to the Boone County Jail and booked on a charge of residential entry.
