Oops: An unidentified man in his 20s got tanked sufficiently to accidentally sneak into the wrong house. A frightened woman called police from their Mid-City home when the tipsy suspect made his way through the window into her house where two children were sleeping inside, according to City News Service.

The kicker? When the cops showed up, the suspect answered the door. The double-kicker? He thought he had been slipping into his buddy's house.

For his efforts, he was taken into custody and booked for trespassing.
