A Wisconsin man entered the wrong house on New Year’s Day and fell asleep with a dog, according to authorities.

The female homeowner found the stranger sleeping on her dog’s bed in the living room and called 911.

The Waukesha Police Department said the man may have entered the house through an unlocked side door.

He was described as “heavily intoxicated after celebrating New Year’s Eve,” reported Fox 6.

A 150-pound Mastiff was also sleeping on the dog bed.

The man was described as cooperative when he awoke and the homeowner declined to press charges.

He was returned to his own residence a few houses away.

The man entered the house around 5:20 a.m. on Tuesday, police told CBS 58. The house was on Cardinal Drive.

Woman Killed by Suspected Drunk Driver

In Texas, a woman was killed after being hit by a suspected drunk driver on New Year’s Day.

The two-car crash took place near Northline around 1:30 a.m., reported the Houston Chronicle.

“It’s not clear exactly how the wreck happened, but afterward police said the man behind the wheel of one car was intoxicated. The woman driving the other vehicle was transported to the hospital, where she later died, according to police,” the outlet reported.

Officials didn’t say what charges the man might be facing.

US Military Deletes Strange New Year’s Eve Tweet

The arm of the U.S. military responsible for America’s nuclear strike capabilities apologized for a Twitter message saying it was prepared to drop something “much, much bigger” than the New Year’s Eve ball in New York after the tweet sparked an outcry.

The tweet, which was posted as revelers around the country were preparing to usher in 2019 was deleted three hours later. The United States Strategic Command said the nation was “ready to drop something much, much bigger” than the famous New Year’s Eve ball, and showed a clip of an aircraft releasing bombs.

The attached video showed a B-2 stealth bomber streaking through the sky before dropping two bombs, according to The New York Times. The footage was accompanied by driving music and the words “STEALTH,” “READY” and “LETHAL” flashed across the screen.

The tweet moved some to voice their outrage.

“I did not believe this could be real,” said Joe Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund and author of “Nuclear Nightmares: Securing the World Before It Is Too Late.”

“It is an industry ad doubling as a sick, bragging joke by our Strategic Command,” Cirincione added. “Disgraceful.”

“I think it’s very tacky,” Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, told CNN. “We don’t need to be acting this way.”

The offending tweet was subsequently deleted.

The Twitter account of the U.S. Strategic Command then posted an apology, saying the message was in “poor taste.”

A representative for the Strategic Command told the Times that the post “was part of our Year in Review series meant to feature our command priorities: strategic deterrence, decisive response, and combat-ready force.”
