It isn’t every day you find a total stranger sitting on the couch in your house, but that is what happened at the Jenkins residence in Wheelersburg. Scioto County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call that a man was lying in the middle of the road in the 1100 block of Pinehurst Avenue in Wheelersburg, Tuesday morning.

When deputies arrived, the woman who had called them, said the man got up and was walking behind her. Deputies searched the area and were unable to find the man. Deputies then received a call from 1206 Pinehurst Ave., that a man they did not know was lying on their couch covered in mud and vomit.

Minutes later deputies arrested Timothy B. Munion, 21, of 805 Harding Ave., Sciotoville and charged him with disorderly conduct.
