A Central Florida man remains behind bars after he told police he was high on meth when a woman found him asleep on a couch inside her home.

Deputies in Lake County arrested 40-year-old Craig McDonald after the home owner said he walked into her house, laid down and refused to leave.

"I said, 'Excuse me, do you belong here? Where are you supposed to be? You're in the wrong house, dude,'" Michelle Oakley told NBC affiliate WESH-TV.

McDonald kicked one deputy in the chest and started swinging his fist at others, according to an arrest report. Deputies used a Taser to subdue McDonald and place him under arrest, where he was arrested and charged with trespassing and battery on an officer and is being held on $51,000 bond.
