A 25-year-old man suspected of breaking into an east Texas house is jailed after police found him taking a bath in the house.

The incident happened about 3:30 a.m. Sunday in a blue-collar neighborhood of northwest Tyler.

Police Sgt. Matthew Smyser says a resident called to report that a man had kicked in the front door of the house. While en route, officers were advised the resident had left the house but the intruder remained inside.

Officers entered the house to find the man had stripped and was taking a bath. After a brief struggle, the man was arrested and booked into the Smith County Jail.

Larry Ticey is jailed on a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge punishable upon conviction by up to one year in jail. No bond amount or attorney is listed in jail records.
