A Minnesota man is in custody after calling in sick to his office – only to be found drunk and bloodied in someone else’s! Cops followed a trail of blood to a telemarketing company conference room, where they found Michael Charles Mitty incoherent and spattered with his own blood — with junk food wrappers strewn around him. Mitty explained that he’d taken the day off in order to stay home, play video games and drink, a plan he followed until he got bored and decided to take a drive.

Police hauled him away, and he now faces felony burglary charges.
