A drunken man ticketed on suspicion of trespassing in a stranger’s home told police the last thing he remembered was being at a UNO hockey game.

Police were called to a house near 69th and Davenport Streets about 5 a.m. Saturday by a homeowner who said he was holding an intruder at gunpoint.

Officers found the resident standing in an entryway of the house. He was pointing a gun at a 32-year-old man who had “very slurred speech and appeared to be incredibly intoxicated,” according to an Omaha Police Department report.

The intoxicated man had a ticket to a University of Nebraska at Omaha hockey game that had started 10 hours earlier at Baxter Arena, which is about 2 1/2 miles from the house. The man told officers that he remembered drinking at the game. He could not, however, recall how he ended up inside the house.

The man was ticketed on suspicion of trespassing and released.
