Man was released from jail, drank liquor, and fainted during burglary
Sheriff's deputies in Livingston Parish, Lousiana, arrested a man who passed out while trying to break into a mobile home where an 82-year-old woman was calling 911 and holding crowbar for defense.
Derrick Gauthreaux was booked into jail on one count of attempted burglary and remained jailed in lieu of $50,000 bond.
Chief of Operations Perry Rushing said Gauthreaux had been released from the New Orleans jail late on the night before the burglary attempt, and received a summons for an open alcoholic drink about an hour before his arrest at about 11 a.m.. (info from The Associated Press)
