Residents Haight broken windows 

An Upper Haight resident had had enough.

Outside his home in the 1300 block of Waller St., a car alarm had been blaring for 45 minutes. It was 7:15 a.m. Wednesday. So the resident went out to the car and found an intruder sleeping inside it, cops said.

He coaxed the 27-year-old San Francisco man from the car and locked it - even though it wasn't his car. Then the intruder became angry.

"The man argued that the resident had locked his phone in the car," police said. Enraged, the intruder hurled a potted plant through the resident's front-door window, police said.

The pair brawled and, finally, the sleeping vandal fled, police said.

Cops arrived and arrested the man nearby. He was charged with three felonies.

The car's owner was later located. She told police she left the car unlocked to deter broken windows.
