Drinking can make a man do things he probably wouldn’t ordinarily do.

Ian M. Lonsdale, for example, is accused of getting drunk, getting lost, pounding on a stranger’s door and then literally crashing on her couch after she went to investigate the commotion, according to Naperville police.

Adam D. Parks can, arguably, top that. The Aurora resident was arrested after allegedly driving drunk and sideswiping another motorist’s vehicle — the vehicle in question being a Naperville police squad car.

Lonsdale, 23, of Arlington, Va., faces trial in DuPage County Circuit Court on misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass to a residence, criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct/breach of peace and attempted disorderly conduct/breach of peace, court records showed.

The 40-year-old Parks is to stand trial there on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, failure to yield to emergency vehicles, possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving without insurance and improper lane usage, court records indicated.

Written Naperville police reports showed Lonsdale was arrested about 12:01 a.m. Sunday at a 42-year-old woman’s home on the 1600 block of Brookdale Road. That is in the Brookdale neighborhood on the city’s northwest side.

Sgt. Lou Cammiso said police that morning found “an intoxicated subject that wandered into the wrong building and was too intoxicated to notice.”

The subject, subsequently identified as Lonsdale, “was pounding on the door, and when an occupant of the house opened the door, he entered and passed out on the couch,” Cammiso said via e-mail. Lonsdale allegedly damaged the storm door in the process, Cammiso said.

Police records indicated Parks was arrested about 1:49 a.m. Feb. 14 near 75th Street and Millbrook Drive in the central part of town.

“A squad car was on a traffic stop and was sideswiped by a passing vehicle,” Cammiso said. The vehicle, with Parks behind the wheel, was quickly stopped, “and subsequent investigation revealed he was under the influence of alcohol” and had a small amount of marijuana in his possession, Cammiso said.

No one was hurt in either incident.

Lonsdale and Parks are both free on bond. Their arraignment dates are pending.
