Imagine waking up in your bed, going to the living room and finding a heavily intoxicated professional hockey player, who apparently shares Jesus’s barber, sitting on your couch after breaking into your home – and refusing to leave.
Benjamin Garza’s family doesn’t need to imagine it, because this insane scene allegedly played out on Monday morning, as Florida Panthers prospect Scott Timmins of the San Antonio Rampage (AHL) left The Hanger bar and ended up on their couch.
Which, in fairness, he thought was his couch.
From KENS 5:
The police report states that when Garza's wife found Timmins sitting on her couch, she asked him who he was, to which he responded, "Don't worry about that."Well that would have been messy.
"He was yelling, 'What are you doing in my house,'" said Garza. "My wife said, 'You need to get the hell out of here,'" added Garza. She was able to escape through a back door with her kids.
She called 911 and her husband. When Garza finally faced the man who scared the daylights out of his children he said, "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."
Police say Timmins, 23, couldn’t remember how he entered the home, but police told KSAT that he entered through a back door and “thought he was in his own home.” He was arrested for criminal trespassing.

No word if the Rampage have cancelled their “AHL Player Breaks Into Your House And Passes Out On Your Couch” promotion ...
