Man breaks into house, drinks until unable to leave 

Police in Delaware say a man broke into a house and drank alcohol, then could not make his way back outside — so he called 911 for help. New Castle County police say John Finch, 44, was trapped in the home in part because he had broken into it before, in April. That led the homeowner to change the locks so a key was required even inside. Police say no one was home when Finch broke in again, through a rear window. He stayed for a few days, drinking three bottles of gin and two bottles of whiskey. When he tried to leave, he was too drunk to climb back out the window.
