Say, what?

Now this is some garage ... but it has nothing to do with this story!

A New Jersey man was charged with criminal trespass after police discovered he had been living in a detached garage for weeks without the knowledge of the 91-year-old homeowner.

Michael Beam, 50, was nabbed near the home getting off a transit bus by police at 12:30 a.m. Monday after they received reports of a suspicious man in the Pompton Plains neighborhood.

A large quantity of feces, a tub of urine, food wrappers, clothes and a blanket were found in the garage, which led police to believe that Beam had been staying there for an extended period of time.

The homeowner said she had not given permission for anyone to stay in her garage and was not even aware that Beam had been living there. After Beam was taken to headquarters, he confessed and was released.

Hum, to go where, I wonder?

...He's gone off to find another garage and another unsuspecting elderly homeowner.
He is perhaps too proud to seek lodging in a homeless shelter.
Hopefully the police released him to some social agency with access to beds.It did not seem like he was a menace or a danger to anyone.
Let's hope it stays that way.
We got O.J. back on the streets to worry about now!

I'll wager that he's one of the 33% of men who do not wash their hands after going to the bathroom. He's also part of a sub-set of men who do not urinate in a toilet.
