Upon talking with the man, he stated that around 11:30pm he was driving on Arsenal Road when he lost control of his vehicle and it became stuck in deep snow.

After all attempts failed, the man decided to start walking for help. He stated that he was extremely cold as the current temperature was -5 degrees.
The man eventually came upon a residence and went to the door because he saw a Ring doorbell. He made every attempt to the homeowner to be alerted that he was outside, to no avail. The man knocked on the doors and eventually broke into the house. He realized no one was home and turned up the heat and began writing an apology letter. Shortly after, he saw deputies arriving on the scene.
Deputies spoke with the brother of the homeowner who stated that he had called 911 because he saw someone inside his brother’s home and he knew his brother was not at home. Deputies contacted the homeowner, explained what had happened, and the homeowner confirmed that he had numerous alerts on his Ring App. The homeowner then understood what had happened and declined to file a complaint.
