LA PECHE, Que. – Police in Western Quebec say a man was fined $496 after he was found snoring in a stranger’s bed early Sunday.
The woman didn’t rouse him and instead went to the police station nearby to notify authorities.
When officers woke up the man, he thought he was in his own home.
Police say the man had been drinking and had mistaken the woman’s house for his own, which was actually 18 kilometres further north.
Sgt. Martin Fournel says the fine was for being on private property without good reason.
