However, according to the dispatch log, the extremely intoxicated man later told the dispatcher he let the woman in, they talked and "then just went to his bed and fell asleep and now (she) is snoring like a train and he wants her out."

The man again changed his story to say he had the woman over and they drank together. He told the dispatcher they "had relations and she fell asleep."

It was later determined the woman has sleep apnea. The man said when he couldn't wake the woman up, he decided to call police. The woman did eventually wake up and explained she had sleep apnea. The man was advised that this was not a police matter because he did in fact let the woman in. He decided to sleep on the couch and "work out the issue in the morning," according to the dispatch log.
