NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — “This is my house and I need to pee.”

William Smallwood made that statement to the person living in a Nashville home when he walked in, thinking it was actually his residence, a Metro police report states.

Smallwood, 38, was charged Sunday morning with criminal trespass and public intoxication.

According to an arrest affidavit, the victim was in the bathroom of his home at an undisclosed location in Nashville, when he heard a noise and his dog started barking.

He walked out and saw Smallwood coming toward the bathroom, the paperwork states.

Despite orders for Smallwood to leave, the victim told police, the suspect used the bathroom, then laid down on the couch.

The victim contacted Metro police and when officers arrived, they said Smallwood was still on the couch and had red, watery eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.

Smallwood was taken into custody and booked into the Metro jail.

The victim told officers he had never seen the suspect before this incident, police said.
