An 29-year-old man is accused of breaking into a woman’s home, taking his clothes off and falling asleep on her bed while she was sleeping in it. Unfortunately for him, he left his ID at the house when he fled.Jonathan Phan, 29, was arrested Friday on suspicion of residential burglary, weeks after a reported break-in, OC Register reports.

Phan is accused of cutting a screen in order to enter the home in the 2100 block of West Civic Center in Santa Ana on July 22. Police say he then stripped and then took a nap on the foot of the woman's bed.

When the woman woke up and saw him, she screamed. This woke Phan up, who jumped out a window but forgot to bring his wallet, phone and pants.

Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said that they don't think Phan knew the woman previously or had any connection to the house.

Phan has previously been in trouble, pleading guilty to misdemeanor possession and usage of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor DUI.

But perhaps the most important fact about Phan is his work in Battle B-Boy, a recent film about an underground dance fighting ring. No wonder he's so tired.
