How Snoring Can Get You Arrested
Sleep apnea is no laughing matter. It has been widely documented that this chronic respiratory disorder can affect any number of areas, including alertness, mood and heart health. But every once in a while, a new potential hazard arises that nobody could have seen coming. Case in point: this Detroit man whose snoring actually led to his arrest.
The CBS Detroit affiliate supplied a news account that ends in a lovely understatement:
“A homeowner in Independence Township heard something outside — she thought she heard someone snoring,” Bouchard said. “And she saw a set of feet under her deck.”
The woman called 911, deputies arrived, and the 49-year-old man was taken into custody outside at the home in the 5400 block of N. Ridge Trail.
Bouchard said this is not typical criminal behavior.
As it happens, the same suspect had allegedly stolen a car earlier in the day. It seems the exertion of that escapade proved too much for the man, who elected to take an ill-advised nap after successfully evading police.
The moral of the story, reluctant as I am to report, is that robbing people almost certainly gets easier with an open airway. So if you’re planning any adventures on either side of the law, I urge you to speak with a sinus expert today to learn about how you can silence your snoring for good.
