Man breaks into house, cleans up, gets arrested

In a rather odd incident recently out of Massachusetts, a man allegedly broke into a home and then was arrested by the police while he was apparently trying to clean the place up.

Reports indicate that the man, who is 33 years old, entered the residence through a door that had been left unlocked. He removed his shoes and cleaned out the litter box for the homeowner's cat. He then started cleaning everything else inside.

The homeowner went outside and called the police. The man still hadn't left when they showed up on the scene. Though they never found a weapon on him in the end, there was some initial confusion over whether or not he was carrying a knife. As a precaution, officers used drew their guns before going inside.

The man was in the kitchen, presumably still hard at work. When the officers entered the house, he raised his hands and came out. He was then arrested without incident. Reports said that he "was in a 'confused' state." Police tried to talk to him and claimed that what he said did not make much sense.

He was arrested and charged with misdemeanor-level breaking and entering. He also was charged with simply disturbing the peace.

A bit of confusion or a momentary lapse in judgment can have drastic ramifications on your life. It is important for anyone who gets arrested to know exactly what legal defense options they have. It's important not to allow a single mistake -- possibly fueled by drugs or alcohol -- affect the rest of your life any more than necessary.
