Audio: Waukesha man calls police on snoring woman in his bed

WAUKESHA - A man from Waukesha called police on Nov. 10 after a woman in his bed was snoring too loudly.

According to the Waukesha Police, the man made the phone call to police just before 4:30 a.m. saying he wasn't sure how the woman got into his bed and he'd like her removed from his apartment. He was apparently "extremely intoxicated" and changed his story, saying he let her in and she fell asleep in his bed and is now "snoring like a train and he wants her out."

He again changed his story, saying he had invited the woman over, had some drinks and then she fell asleep. When he decided to go to bed, he couldn't wake her up so he called police.

"She was woken up and found to be fine medically, just has sleep apnea," Waukesha Police said. "He was advised this was not a police matter because he allowed her in."

The record shows Ben Duddles was the voice on the other end of the line. Police say his call was a colossal waste of their resources, and an example of what not to do - so TODAY'S TMJ4 went to Ben's house to get his side of the story.

He let us right in. At first, Ben defended his decision to make the call.

"I did nothing wrong and I will stand by that," he said.

Eventually, he had a change of heart, and wanted an apology to police to be the words you really remember him by.


"They could have been catching a drunk driver or responding to an accident or something like that instead of something so ridiculous," says Duddles. "I would just like to apologize"

Listen to the call above.
