A San Antonio, Texas woman had quite the rude awakening Monday morning after discovering a stranger passed out on her couch.
Florida Panthers prospect Scott Timmins, originally from Hamilton, Ontario, found his way into the home of Benjamin Garza sometime early in the morning, and decided to take a load off on the family’s couch.
He was discovered passed out there when Garza’s wife awoke to dogs barking and went down to investigate.
According to the Toronto Sun, Garza’s wife asked the 23-year-old Timmins who he was, to which he replied: “Don’t worry about that.”
According to Garza:
(Timmins) was yelling, 'What are you doing in my house?! My wife said, 'You need to get the hell out of here.’
When the AHL player refused to leave, Garza’s wife phoned the police, and they arrested Timmins for criminal trespassing.
Timmins allegedly told police he couldn’t remember how he entered the house and that “he thought he was in his own home”. Police say he was highly intoxicated.

Garza, when asked to comment on the bizarre incident, told reporters he spoke to Timmins and told him:
You're lucky I wasn't here, because I would've put a bullet between your eyes.
Timmins has 19 career NHL games with the Panthers, and was drafted 165th overall by the club in 2009.
He’s played 70 games with the San Antonio Rampage this season, scoring 11 goals with 16 assists.
