The old “I thought it was my house” story has made a comeback. Scott Timmins of the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage reportedly went down that road early Monday morning, as San Antonio television station KENS reported that the 23-year-old broke into a family’s home after leaving a bar and took a seat on the couch.

Homeowner Benjamin Garza, who was not home at the time, was none too pleased. His three children and wife were in the house alone. Garza said his wife discovered Timmons on the couch and asked him who he was, to which he responded, “Don’t worry about that.”

“He was yelling, ‘What are you doing in my house,’ ” Garza told KENS. “My wife said, ‘You need to get the hell out of here.’ ”

Garza said his wife called 911 and then him. When he finally met Timmins face-to-face, he let him know how fortunate he was that the man of the house was not home when he decided to come in uninvited.

“You’re lucky I wasn’t here because I would’ve put a bullet between your eyes and it would’ve been over for you,” Garza said he told Timmins. “My first instinct was to beat the hell out of him. He needs to pay for what he did, traumatizing my family like that.”

The police report stated Timmins was so heavily intoxicated that he was barely able to stand and did not remember how he got into Garza’s home. According to the report, he did admit that he had been out drinking with some teammates, but added that he thought he was in his own home. Timmins has been charged with criminal trespass.

Hey, at least he thought it was his own house. That’s a better explanation than the one this guy gave when he broke into an MLB general manager’s home in November 2011.
