A unidentified Red Bank teenager, drunk and separated from his partymates, wandered into an Ocean Township home early today, where he noshed on food before passing out in a chair, the Asbury Park Press is reporting.

From the story:

The 17-year-old, who was not identified because of his age, was discovered by police sometime after 5:35 a.m. when a resident woke up to the sound of the family’s dog barking and realized an intruder was in the house. The resident called 911 to report the prowler, police said.

The teen was charged with defiant trespassing and consuming alcohol on private property while under the age of 21.

Police told the Press that the disoriented kid apparently wandered into the house through an unlocked garage door and consumed food from both the fridge and the kitchen table before settling into a living room chair and falling asleep.

The boy “had been among those who had fled the scene of an underage drinking party at another house on Melville Street when police arrived to break up the party at which eight other juveniles and six adults were charged,” the Press says.
