A man allegedly broke into a home in Lincoln while covered in urine.

Ethan Swafford, 24, was arrested on suspicion of burglary, according to a probable cause report from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

An officer was dispatched to a home in the 14000 block of Bethel Blacktop Rd in Lincoln in reference to a burglary in progress, according to the report.

The caller that made the report said they found a male without a shirt in the living room of their home, staring at the fireplace, according to the report.

When the officer arrived, he entered the home and saw the living room ransacked. A white man was laying on the ground without a shirt on. When the officer attempted to roll the man over and handcuff him, he tensed up clinching his fist, according to the report.

The officer struggled to cuff the man but eventually succeeded. The man was highly intoxicated and covered in urine, according to the report.
