A Navy sailor was arrested Saturday morning in Ebina City, Japan for breaking and entering, and showering in a stranger's apartment. 

Petty Officer 2nd Class Dominic William, who is stationed at Naval Air Facility Atsugi in Kanagawa Prefecture, admitted to the charge — but was too intoxicated to remember how he ended up in the apartment. Police determined that Williams entered the apartment through the unlocked front door.

The 44-year-old resident of the apartment woke up around 5:10 a.m. Saturday and heard his shower running. Williams appeared completely naked. Japan Today writes that the resident "subdued" Williams and had his wife notify the police. 

Happens to all of us.
