A WOMAN at home alone was terrified when she heard someone having a shower in her house. Police later found a red-faced neighbour who was so drunk that he went into the house because he thought it was his own. "He was very apologetic," Superintendent Daniel Shean told the Northern Territory News. The man got lost on the way to his house in Katherine on Wednesday night. He walked into the home and took a shower in an attempt to sober up.Â The 34-year-old householder was asleep upstairs. She woke up, heard the water running and frantically rang the police. When officers arrived, they found the 42-year-old sitting on the woman's verandah - dressed again. He said "sorry" to the police and woman many times after realising his mistake. The man was taken into protective custody to sleep off his big night. "The woman was just happy for us to take him away," Supt Shean said. "She thought he was a burglar."
