Chip-eating intruder sentenced to probation

A Greenwood man who was found eating chips in a stranger’s living room while wearing only underwear will serve probation.

In June 2015, a Center Grove area resident was awakened at 3:15 a.m. by 19-year-old Andrew Wozniak standing in his living room, eating chips. The resident got Wozniak out of his home before calling police.

Sheriff’s deputies found Wozniak walking down the street, still wearing only underwear. Wozniak and the other man were both unaware how he got into the home. A test showed Wozniak had a blood-alcohol level of .10 percent. He was taken to Johnson Memorial Hospital to be examined, and yelled profanities and threatened the deputy and correctional officer, police said.

He was arrested on charges of residential entry, disorderly conduct, possession or consumption of alcohol by a minor and intimidation. He pleaded guilty to each of those charges.

Wozniak is required to serve a year on probation, do 48 hours of community service and participate in substance abuse evaluation.

His defense attorney, Heath Johnson, said Wozniak is now going to school in Anderson.
