    A man was arrested after falling asleep in the wrong house.

    Authorities in western New York say a 20-year-old man thought he was sleeping on his friend's couch when state troopers woke him up over the weekend.

    It turns out he was off by about 20 miles.

    State police say a homeowner in rural Erie County town of Newstead woke up around 4:30 a.m. Saturday and found a stranger sleeping on his couch. He was unable to wake up the stranger, so his wife called 911. When troopers arrived, they found the very intoxicated man still sleeping on the couch.

    Troopers say the man told him he thought he was at a friend's house on Grand Island, 20 miles west of Newstead.

    The man was charged with criminal trespass and issued an appearance ticket for Newstead Town Court.
