The couple, from Lebanon, called 911 around 6:30 a.m. Oct. 3 and waited upstairs for police to arrive, the television station reported.

A Boone County sheriff's deputy found Seamus Lyles, 22, lying on the couch. Roused awake, Lyles told the deputy he believed he was in his own apartment, WXIN reported.

Lyles, who sported a black eye, told the deputy he had been out drinking the previous night and must have been involved in a fight, the television station reported.

A portable breathalyzer test showed Lyles' blood alcohol concentration was at 0.12 percent, according to court documents. The legal limit in Indiana is .08.

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