Police: Augusta man fell asleep in stranger’s living room, refused to leave

The Associated Press

RANDOLPH, Maine — Police in Maine have charged a man they say entered a stranger’s home in the early morning hours, fell asleep in a living room chair and refused to leave even after a resident pointed a gun at him and told him to get out.

State police say John Rastelli, 39, of Augusta was charged with violating conditions of release and criminal trespassing after entering the Randolph home through an unlocked door last week.

Police tell the Kennebec Journal that Rastelli appeared drunk when confronted by a 56-year-old woman and her armed 34-year-old son at about 3 a.m. last Friday.

Rastelli insisted he was in a friend’s home and refused repeated orders to leave.

He is free on $100 bail.

No one was injured.
